Big Kitchen Problems With Little Black Ants
Even if you leave the kitchen spotless before you head into bed one night, you could still have a problem with little black ants as soon as you wake up the next morning. No one wants to deal with ants all over the kitchen, so what should your next step be? This guide can help.
For many, the first step is to grab a spray off the shelf at the nearest hardware store. This is a terrible idea for a couple of reasons. First, those sprays are carefully formulated to deal with certain types of ants. Grab the wrong kind, and you aren’t going to do anything but spread pesticides all over your kitchen. Second, and perhaps more importantly, if you spray the ants you see, you’re only treating part of the problem. There’s far more to it than a few ants on the counter, and a spray can nearby isn’t going to treat your underlying issues.
