How to Get Rid of Ants in Brentwood TN

I recently pondered this dilemma myself. I saw a stream of them walking from an outside wall to my dishwasher. I sprayed them and their path with Raid. Although I never could find out the exact location where they were coming in, after spraying a few times they disappeared.

 A few days later, however; I saw them walking in another part of my kitchen. These were the same little tiny black ants. I would get rid of the ones I saw but then would see more the next time I entered the kitchen. I was so tired of seeing ants!

Luckily, within a few days I had a visit from my brother’s family from Baton Rouge. My sister-in-law mentioned she had had ant problems recently and one of her sisters-in-law recommended a product. She tried it and it worked like a charm. She gave me the name, I purchased it and voila, the ants are gone.

Terro

I wrote this blog post because if you want to know How to Get Rid of Ants in Brentwood TN you’ll want to know the name of this product…Terro. I bought it at Home Depot for less than $4 and it was worth every penny. You put a few drops of the liquid on a piece of cardboard and leave it where the ants will find it. They happily come and munch on the sweet drops of goodness and then head back to their nest, or so I understand. It is pretty disgusting while they are congregating on the cardboard, but when most were gone the next day I threw away all the cardboard that was left out and cleaned the counters.

Ants

 

I have not seen an ant since and that was 4 days ago. I still have a large amount of Terro left, if I ever need it again, but I think it will be awhile before I see any more ants.

If you are interested in finding an ant-free home in Brentwood Tennessee, I would be happy to help. You may want to start searching here:  Brentwood TN homes for sale.

Good for you!  I don't like any crawling little critters around either!  Thanks for sharing, we normally see ants in the summer time!  We use the little poison ant traps, they take the food back to their nest and they all die off.  My saying, "KILL EM ALL"
