Knoxville Ant Control

Ants Invading Your Home? We Can Help!

Ants invade homes all over east Tennessee when the weather warms up. Many ants, as well as other pests, become active searching for mates, food, and new shelter during the warmer months of the year. That’s why it’s important to treat for ant problems as soon as possible. Ants are comparatively small to most pests, and without the help of an expert, proper exclusion can be a challenge to say the least.

Ants are extremely frustrating to get rid of once they have entered your home. Trust us, at Pest-Ops, LLC, we have tested about every DIY home remedy, old wives’ tale, and store product to see how they compare to our professional pest service, and we have noticed ants simply moved across to untreated areas of homes in order to avoid the treated areas.

We offer free inspections. To schedule ant control in Knoxville, call (865) 290-7760 or contact us online.

Methods to Control Ants

Here are some tried and true methods for controlling (not treating) ants:

  • Keep food in sealed containers
  • Clean common spaces where food or drinks are consumed
  • Keep any trashcans covered with lids
  • Close doors and windows
  • Install weather sills and weather stripping on doors and windows
  • Dry up any spills or moisture (especially of sweetened drinks)

What Repels Ants?

There are steps homeowners can take to repel ants before the problem grows. Many common household items actually work as perfect home remedies to keep ants at bay. Here are some of the most common and effective home remedies to repel ants:

  • Spray a 50/50 vinegar and water solution around common entry places or areas ants have been seen.
  • Baby Powder can act as a barrier to stop ants in their tracks.
