Too Many Ants Spoiling Your Picnic?

Get rid of ants on this slice of watermelon.

These pesky pests are unwanted guests to your gathering, and they don’t come marching two by two, as the nursery rhyme goes.. You don’t want ants spoiling your picnic. If your ants are worrying you, whether they are outdoors or in your kitchen, give us a call at Pestcheck.

They don’t come marching two by two either, as the nursery rhyme goes, it’s more like 1,000 by 10,000! If you don’t do something fast, these little invaders will soon take over. They have their rightful place out in nature but they are very inconsiderate house guests.

Eating outside is one of the best parts about summer, but unfortunately, these pesky pests tend to put a damper on this. Whether it’s a fun picnic in the park or dinner off the grill, the last thing you want is uninvited guests.


One of the best way to get rid of them is to eliminate standing water. They are attracted to moisture. Another, is to make sure tree branches and other shrubs don’t touch your home structure. Also, check to see if there are cracks or openings around the bottom of your home’s walls. If there are, seal them with caulking. Firewood and debris should not be stored up against your house, as ants love wet stacks of wood.
