Salt Lake City's Ultimate Ant Prevention Guide

There are so many ant species in Salt Lake City that it's hard to know what ants you're dealing with. We have pavement ants, field ants, carpenter ants, fire ants, raspberry crazy ants, and the list goes on and on. While each ant species is somewhat different in terms of what is required to get control of them, there are general tips that can work to prevent all types of ants from getting into your Salt Lake City home. Here's what you need to know:

Store Food In Sealed Containers

If ants find their way into your pantry or kitchen cabinets, make sure they don't find easy access to your foods. We recommend putting your stored food products in sealed glass or plastic containers to keep smells in and ants out.

Clean Clean Clean

It doesn't take much food to feed an ant. Make sure to keep your counters, shelves, cabinets, floors, and rugs clean. If you bring food into your living room, be sure to clean couches, chairs, and other furniture that can capture crumbs and other food remnants.

Put Pet Food Away

If you have a dog or cat, their food can be food for ants. We recommend putting food and water down only during meal times, and never overnight.

Do Inspections

If you have kids, your kids can feed the ants. They have a way of leaving food behind in hidden places. We know that life is tough when you're raising kids, but it pays to take a few minutes to do a quick inspection. You might find a banana peel behind the couch. You might find an apple behind the entertainment center. You could find an empty yogurt cup under a bed. It is best that you find those food sources before ants do.

Exterior Attractants

There are many ways your exterior can be attractive to ants. If you alter conditions around your home, you can reduce ants.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Leaves and brush piles are an ant paradise
  • Standing water will give ants a drinking hole
  • Weeds, unnecessary vegetation, and tall grass create moist natural habitats for ants
  • Scraps of wood, construction materials, and woodpiles are a strong attractant
