Heat is not the only factor that will drive a trail of ants into your home this summer. A spell of dry air combined with warm weather will increase your chance of an ant infestation.
Argentine ants & odorous house ants seem to be the most popular infestations in San Diego & Riverside County. These ants invade homes to seek shelter and obtain food & water.
The factors that influence the level of activity are temperatures and hours of sunshine during the day.
Some of the techniques include: clearing out leaf litter in your yard & garden, keeping pot plants off the ground, storing food in sealed containers, secure trash receptacles, clean & remove animal food bowls immediately after use, & seal openings on your structure.
Other home remedies that deter pests by the use of organic products is to line areas where ants are entering with vinegar, baking soda, chalk, talcum powder, salt, cornmeal, pepper, cinnamon, peppermint oil, and bay leaves.
