Indoor and Outdoor Nesting Ants Prevention in Kitchen Areas


 
Health,Environment,Home Improvement
Pest control in restaurants and kitchens can be tricky. Chemicals that kill pests are often harmful to humans, too. Laws forbid the use of many chemical pesticides in food service establishments, since food can be contaminated.

Use eco-friendly pesticides and repellants.It is cheaper and safer. If you plan on hiring a professional, a number of eco-friendly exterminators are available.

Guidelines for Pest Prevention

The best way to eliminate pests is to prevent them from entering and finding food.

Keep it clean.Clean all spills right away. Consistently mop floors and wipe down countertops and tables. Isolate garbage.Use tight-fitting lids on waste receptacles. Throw out garbage promptly. Wash your garbage cans every day. Seal points of entry.Make sure all windows and doors are tightly sealed. Do not leave open unscreened windows or doors. Cover vents and drains with screens. Inspect new supplies. Check incoming inventory for roaches, pantry moths and other insects. Immediately dispose of anything suspect.

Ants Control

Keep your building clean and tightly sealed. You can also prevent or repel ants somewhat effectively with any of the following: cinnamon, cayenne pepper, black pepper, vinegar, chalk, talcum powder and bay leavesWhen preventive methods have not worked, there are two types of ants that could be invading your kitchen: indoor-nesting ants and outdoor-nesting ants.

Indoor-Nesting Ants

Small and reddish-brown in color, pharaoh ants nest indoors. The most effective safe pesticide is boric acid.

Recipe: Mix one teaspoon boric acid or borax with a jar of jelly or 2 cups of sugar water. Place the jelly or tiny cotton balls dipped in the sugar-water mixture near the ant problem, but do not block the ant trail. Place one to three pieces of bait every 25 feet. Hopefully, the ants will carry the boric acids back to their colony and decimate themselves.

Outdoor-Nesting Ants

Large or black ants are probably outdoor-nesting ants that are foraging inside. Here are a few tips to get rid of outside-nesting ants the eco-friendly way:

Follow the ant trail to identify the ants' entry points. Seal entry points with caulk or screens. For a temporary seal, use baking soda paste. Apply sticky barriers to the wall foundation or legs of tables. Spray soapy water to kill individual ants or erase their trails.
