Seal off access points – check the exterior of your house for any cracks or crevices which may act as easy ways for ants to enter your home, then block them off using a silicone solution.
Avoid damp under your floorboards – damp can attract ants, so ensure that all water sources (leaky pipes, faulty drains) are working properly and not leaking.
Keep your house clean – that means no crumbs on kitchen worktops or on the floor, and regular skooshes of antibacterial spray on work surfaces.
Don’t make food easily accessible – all food (including pet food) should be locked in airtight containers and not stored in paper bags. This will also avoid attracting other pests like rats.
