The ants and bugs we have can make us crazy. Here we have the tried and true tips for getting rid of those pesky ants and other crawling insects!

1

Spray nests with indoor insecticide and look for water-damaged areas in the house and places where water has recently leaked to find the ant nest. Later spray the nest with an indoor insecticide.

2

Spray an indoor insect killer in places where ants can enter, holes in exterior walls and cracks in the foundation

3

Spray outdoor poison below lap siding, spray outdoor insecticide on the foundation walls, and on and under the first course of lap siding to keep ants from entering the house.

4

Spray a lawn and garden insect killer on the grass within one day of mowing and also spray on trees and shrubs. Spray on a calm day to prevent drift.
