When you only have a few months of summer, as we have here in Maine, it is important that you enjoy it as much as you can. This means trips to the coast, canoeing on lakes, and all around spending more time in the sun. However, when ants get involved in our summer experiences, they have a habit of ruining them. Whether you are trying to have a picnic outdoors or attempting to make a pie indoors, if ants join the party, it stops being a party. “Is there a way to stop these annoying invaders?” We are here to tell you there is.
Why Ants Are A Big Problem In The Summer
The warm weather of summer invites creatures of all kinds to enjoy our beautiful state of Maine. Birds like ducks return from the south, bears come out from hibernating, and ants return from being dormant to scavenge for food once again.
The reason ants are only a summer pest is because their biology does not allow them to function once the weather cools down, forcing them to go dormant to survive our often harsh winters. However, when the weather heats back up, ants not only start moving again, they start working fast, reaching full productivity when the temperature is between 75-95 degrees Fahrenheit.
Difficulties of DIY Treatments
If you have ever seen lines of ants scavenging food out of your kitchen, you have probably looked up ways to get and keep them out. Some sources may say that sealing off your home is your best option. However, this is often a lot of work. II is difficult to seal off every potential entry point for ants. Other sources may say to use pesticides to treat ants yourself. The problem with this is that many pesticides contain dangerous chemicals that, if ingested or in some cases even only inhaled, could cause medical troubles. If you don’t know how to use these products properly, they could end up harming more than ants. This is the last thing we want here at Bug Busterzzz
