LoveBug Pest Control is here to educate homeowners on a common pest we are likely to see in our homes, kitchen ants. LoveBug Pest Control gets many calls about customers seeing kitchen ants in their homes, who often try and rid them with over the counter pest control products.

LoveBug Pest Control explains the reason homeowners shouldn’t use these types of products is that kitchen ants leave behind a pheromone trail from the colony as they look for food to communicate signals to other ants.

If homeowners spray over the counter products, the ants will leave a pheromone trail behind to signal that there is danger. What winds up happening is that the ants will move the colony, rebuild, or send more ants that can double the amount of ants. We learn that the best treatment for getting rid of kitchen ants is bait.

To set up ant bait in your home, please call the experts at LoveBug Pest Control to assist. Visit our website at, or give us a call at (210) 396-7100.
