If you were to go out into your yard right now, how many anthills would you be able to count? One? Ten? More? Across our beautiful state each year, ants build their homes in places that cause us trouble—most of the time right in the middle of our yards. As for getting rid of those pesky anthills, it's not always as easy as it may seem. We fill them up with water, and they are back bigger and better just a few days later. We stomp on them, and the ants rebuild. It is not hard to feel like no matter what we do, there is just no keeping them away; but does this mean we just give up the thought of summer fun in our backyards? Not at all.
Why Ants In The Lawn Can Quickly Become Ants In The House
For ants, their hills act as their home base. This is to say that they do not stay in them 24/7. Just like we have to make food runs, ants must do the same. However, for ants, a food run is much more complicated than driving to the store and filling up a cart. For ants, a food runs consists of three things, searching, discovery, and collection. This is where your home is at risk. All it takes is one ant wandering inside, and a single scrap of food for an invasion to begin. Naturally, the closer anthills are to your home, the more likely your chances of ants wandering inside and finding what they are looking for.
