Preventing ants is always a challenge, but even more so for Property Managers like you who have to keep tenants and guests happy.

Follow these 5 simple Pro Tips to keep your clients ant-free this summer:

  1. Figure out what kind of ants you have so you can determine what they’re eating and where they’re coming from. There are four that you’re most likely to encounter: pavement ants, Argentine ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants.
  2. Remove any litter from the foundation of the buildings. Ensure trees and bushes are trimmed away from the building.
  3. Eliminate sources of standing water or high-moisture areas. Replace leaky faucets and run air-conditioning drain lines away from the property.
  4. Make sure all cracks, windows and door frames are properly sealed.
  5. Remove all potential food sources. Ants enjoy sugary foods, proteins, and fats. In addition to making sure your food is properly sealed-up, and be sure to quickly clean up any spills, grease splatters, and crumbs.
