I'm Trevor with Monster Pest Control located in American Fork, Utah. We're talking about how to rid your home of insects. This topic is how to rid your house of ants. How to get rid of the ants in your home. A couple of things, quite often when you start seeing ants in the kitchen area, they'll be coming up through corners or edges, through the windows, places like that. So what I like to do is I always like to make sure that there's no food out, everything is covered. But with the food here, if they don't have time to clean up, there's other methods and other ways of getting it. You can use a little bait trap setting those in different areas such as like that, that they'll come in. There's liquid bait, there's like different gels that we can go up around edges and corners. Another way too, is by getting all the baseboard areas down low where you find the ants and spraying them in those areas. We could also get the window seals also to get rid of them. But there's so many varieties of areas. You don't want to seal up one area and block them in there. It takes some time to get rid of the ants, so make sure that you clean off the dishes, make sure everything is kind of put away, cleaned up so that the person can take some time. I like to use what we call an inside outside method, and I use two different materials. One for the inside, one for the outside, and it works within just a few days to get rid of the ants. There's so many varieties of ants out there that there's many different methods that we just don't have time to tell you about the different ways of taking care of the ants in your home.
