1. Destruction of their home. Seeking out to destroy ants nest in the environment is not a very good idea because no matter how little a thing is, it still part of the ecosystem maintaining the balance on earth. Nevertheless, if they keep paying you visits and pesters you indefinitely then it’s your turn to do the same. Do this by:
a. Find the source. Follow their leads from inside your house to the outside where they may possible be lurking deep in the ground. Once you get to their soil make a hole, pick up a jug of hot water and unload it into their hideout.
b. Try a bottle of solution. If hot water did not work out, try pouring it with a mix of one part of camphor oil with 9 parts of ethyl alcohol.
c. Kill their Source. If demolishing their home has not stopped them from invading you, then your last resort will be the mother queen, the one producing countless of them to come harass you. However, it will not be easy killing their mother queen if the colony are aggressive enough.
2. Nothing can harm you, if you don’t let them. In order to really keep these pests from your comfort zone, you have to do you share in maintaining cleanliness inside and outside your home.
a. Food should be contained in airtight box. This will not only keep your food from getting spoiled but should bugs or pests get trapped inside, it will be easy to dispose of it without spreading it inside your house.
b. Clean surfaces with hypochlorite solution. Any flat surface should be wiped clean regularly to remove foodstuff that sticks to them thus preventing any infestation.
c. Regularly mop and clean the floor.
d. Wash the dishes every after meal to keep the sink clean of left-over food that can attract ants.
e. If you have a pet, put its food bowl over a bigger bowl filled with water to create a barricade from ants.
