How & Why Ants Enter Your Home
Ants are social insects, so when you see one or two crawling on the walls and counters, chances are there are hundreds in the area.
Ants move indoors in search of water and food, often found in the kitchen or near leaky pipes and plumbing. They enter the home through tiny cracks in the floors and walls, improperly sealed windows and vents of any kind.
Landscape materials that overhang the house provide an easy way for ants to get in. Once inside, ants may establish a nest within the walls or any place hospitable for their survival.
If you find a few ants in your home you should get a pest inspection done immediately.
