First, you'll see one. One little ant. No big deal, right? Soon, you'll see another. And another. Once ants have gained a foothold in your home, there's no stopping them.
Ants are the most common pests encountered in the St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay areas. And there are many different types of ants found in Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties. Fire ants, along with carpenter ants, are both common and destructive.
Ants typically gain access to your home through small cracks and crevasses in walls, window sills, doorways, and even your shower tile. Outside your home, they can build colonies via sidewalks, patios, or decaying tree trunks.

ANT PREVENTION TIPS
Store food in tight containers, not leaving uneaten food out, and removing plants that produce honeydew.
Reduce moisture sources and be sure to patch up leaks in the roof and walls where it can seep in. Also be sure to repair cracks in tile.
Ensure there is no decayed or rotting wood in your home. Check bookshelves, desks, tables, old furniture, and cabinets.
Check cracks and crevasses outside your home, including sidewalks, patios, and trees.
