How to Keep Your Lawn Ant Free in 2019

April 30, 2019


It’s impressive how well ants work together to pester us on a day-to-day basis. The scavenging lines they make in and out of our kitchens are surprisingly organized. The portions of food they steal sometimes seem too big for their little bodies to carry, yet time and time again, they find a way.

At this point, we are well on our way into 2019, and ants don’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon. Our outdoor gatherings will remain under siege, and ants will continue to amaze while proving how much of a pest they are. Perhaps it’s time to start fighting back.

Factors That Draw Ants In

There are a number of kinds of ants here in Florida and, for the most part, they are all drawn to properties by one major factor, easily accessible food sources. Generally, ants are attracted to sugary foods, but some ants have a wider diet consisting of a number of food items. In the wild, ants will typically feed on nectar, honeydew, or other sweet plant growth. Around homes, they will commonly search out foods in the form of sugary beverages, fruits, soda, vegetables, meats, nuts, and a number of other foods. Most commonly ants will find these items after an outdoor gathering, when fruit falls off a tree in your yard, or from your pet's outdoor feeding bowl.

Prevention Steps To Employ

One of the best ways you can help keep your yard ant free this 2019 is by reducing the food that could be drawing them in. Make sure no sugary beverages or food items are left out after outdoor gatherings, pick up pet-feeding stations promptly after your pet has finished, and clean up any dropped fruit as it falls on the ground.
