Ant Exterminator Singapore:

INTRODUCTION TO ANTS:

Ants are the most industrious pests to invade your home. They enter your home through small cracks and leave trails for others to join them, with colonies sizing up to 500,000. As ants have varying life cycles, home remedies are incapable of targeting different kinds of ant infestations.

WHY DO I HAVE AN ANT INFESTATION?

It's important to know what attracts ants to your home and what you can do to help remove them from your premises. Ants are always in search of food, water, and shelter. If you don't clean up food crumbs and water spillage, you are likely to attract ants. Small cracks in walls can also provide shelter, and sealing them can reduce the chance of an ant infestation. ORIGIN offers several treatment options to best suit your home and family and eradicate your ant invasion problems.


 
 

Signs of Ants Infestation

  • Visible Ant Trails: An obvious indicator is when you see ants marching in a line toward food sources.
  • Nests: Check if there are little heaps of sand or mud in wall cavities or close to foundations? Those may be ant hills.
  • Discarded Wings: If you see buzzing ant wings around, there’s likely a colony nearby.
  • Rustling Noises: Hearing soft rustling sounds in walls or hidden spots? Ants might be moving around.
  • Food Contamination: It's undoubtedly an alert sign if you see ants in your pantry or food packaging.
Preventing these symptoms can help avoid more severe issues. To ensure your home and commercial space remain safe and ant-free contact ORIGIN's Ant Exterminator now!

Prevention Tips

  • Seal Ant Entry Points: Use silicone to seal all visible cracks and crevices to keep ants out.
  • Secure Gaps: Make sure that gaps around windows, doors, and walls are sealed properly, to avoid ants from invading.
  • Create a Tape Barrier: Use adhesive tape to wrap around the area, sticky side up to trap the ants.
  • Proper Food Storage: To keep ants out, keep your premises clean regularly and store food in sealed bags.

You can prevent ants from entering your residential or commercial spaces and maintain a secure and ant-free atmosphere by adhering to these easy-to-follow yet very efficient tips. If it gets severe call ORIGIN Exterminators for Ant Control Services.
