Minimise an Ant invasion

Summer time may be one of your favourite times of year, but it’s also peak ant season. These tiny insects may not mean any harm, but they can cause real problems for people and businesses alike. Thankfully, it’s now possible to buy effective ant killer products that can help tackle this issue.

If you want to minimise the chances of an invasion occurring in the first place, you can follow our top tips.

Ooh, crumbs

You no doubt lead a busy life and sometimes you might be tempted to leave food leftovers or crumbs lying around. However, this is a mistake. All food should be cleared away ASAP, with leftovers placed in sealed containers or in the fridge.

Regular vacuuming of carpets and sofas can also help to get rid of bits of food.

The same principle applies to liquids. Don’t leave spillages on the floor or on work surfaces as this can attract the insects. Ants love sweet things, and especially in summer, there may be plenty of sweet drinks lying around.

Mind the gap

Because they are so small, ants can get through tiny gaps around door and window frames. It’s therefore really important that you seal and insulate these. This is a double whammy. As well as helping to prevent the insects from entering your premises, it can also boost the energy efficiency of your building.


Then there’s your rubbish to think about. All homes and businesses use bins, and if they’re not managed properly, they can be a real draw for ants. Make sure your bin has a tightly fitting lid and empty it on a regular basis. This applies to compost bins too.

Taking these insects on

If it’s too late and your property is already suffering from an ant invasion, our products can help. We offer everything you need to eradicate an ant infestation – and fast! For example, perhaps Rentkil Ant Killer Powder is just what you’re looking for. This ant powder offers a highly effective method of ant control and it’s also powerful enough to combat a range of other crawling insects too.
You can use it both inside and outside your home.

Meanwhile, why not check out our Ant Control Kit? This includes a range of ant control products, including spray, powder and gel. It’s worth noting that if several rooms within your property are affected, or if ant activity is spread over a couple of large areas, you might need to invest in additional Ant Nest Killer Gels. We recommend two baits per room.
