Do you have ants in your pants? This is something parents will say to children that won’t sit still, but it could be a real experience for some homeowners. If you live in an area where there are a lot of ants, you want to keep them out of your home to the best of your ability. However, there are some things that you might do that you don’t realize that it attracts ants.

One thing is putting out recycling without cleaning out sugary substances first. The most common culprits when it comes to this is sugary drinks and soda. Ants will love getting into any container that has something sugary in it, and from there, the journey to your home is very short. If you do notice a single ant in your home, then it most likely is a scout, letting you know that there are more coming. Investing in some ant traps can make a world of difference as long as they are placed in the right spot.
