Thorough Kitchen Cleaning Prevents Unwanted Guests in Your Home

kitchen cleaningThere’s still plenty of summer left for entertaining. With the arrival of warmer temperatures comes an influx of unwanted guests into your home. One of the most common home invaders this time of year is ants.

Only a small handful of ants insist on invading our homes in search of something tasty. Aiming to control them and prevent them from accessing your food is a better approach than seeking to completely eliminate them. Most of the things ants do are good for us and the environment including eating the larvae of fleas, spiders, bed bugs flies, silverfish and cloths moths.

For the ants you need to control, there are some easy, natural and effective ways to remove ants from your home areas. The first sign of ants in your kitchen is a warning to you. Waste no time in getting to work cleaning your kitchen, sealing all food and removing all sources of sticky, sweet, greasy and flesh foods from their access. Seal every food in containers. Be relentless about this. The ants, having nothing to eat, will go elsewhere. This works because the ants are following the chemical traits left by other ants, who did find food.

You may also need to seal fragment items such as cleaning powders, deodorants using silicone, caulk, putty glue or plaster. Empty coffee grounds on ant hills and along your house foundations. This safe material confuses the worker ants because they loose their scent trails. It is important to apply grounds every year but that is what makes it safe, no residue effects. Clean kitchens are a must.
