Ants can find their way into your home at any time of the year; but become the biggest nuisance in warmer months, as they seek food for recently laid larvae. As the temperature rises, these pests begin breeding, causing an influx of male ants – often winged – which swarm windows in people’s homes.
How to Get Rid of Ants in the Home
There are various do-it-yourself ant powders and bait stations available, which may provide some relief to the problem; however, it’s unlikely a full ant infestation will be eradicated using only DIY treatments.
Ant treatments made available to the public, for example in gardening stores, are of a low concentration. This is to adhere to health and safety regulations and limit non-target poisoning, but also means these treatments are less effective.
In addition, the general public aren’t trained to use these treatments as effectively as possible and only qualified, trained pest controllers have access to the most superior chemical treatments.

DIY Methods to Get Rid of Ants
Many people use boiling water to diffuse an ant infestation. In truth, if you hit the nest directly, this will have a positive impact on reducing the ant problem. The problem is locating the nest. It’s tough to hit it directly with any DIY method you employ and, if the infestation is indoors, it’s unlikely pouring boiling water through the house is an option.
Crushing ants, by stomping or swatting, is another method commonly used by homeowners to try to get rid of ants in the house. Although it may initially appear to have helped, in reality, the few you kill are barely likely to scratch the surface, as an ant nests can be tens of thousands strong. The best way to eradicate an ant infestation is to ditch DIY methods and hire professionals, who will rid you of the problem faster and more effectively.
