Ants are one of the most common pests found in homes near the north central states. If you have ants in your house, getting rid of them can be difficult without the help of a pest control expert. To learn more about how to deal with an infestation of ants in your house, read on.
Identify the Insect
Many homeowners see small ant-like insects in the kitchen and assume they have an ant infestation. It’s important to know, however, that ants and termites look almost identical until you look closely at them. Winged ants typically have narrow and constricted waist, bent antennae, and hind wings that are shorter than their front wings. Termites tend to have a more rectangular body with straight antennae and four wings of equal size and shape that are longer than the body.
Remove the Source of Food
Clean your eating surfaces thoroughly so that ants aren’t attracted into your home. If possible, keep food out of the bedroom and living room to avoid spreading crumbs that can attract ants. In the kitchen, put food in airtight containers and be sure to keep the sink free of dirty dishes. Wipe down all surfaces in the kitchen every day with an all-purpose cleaner or a mixture of mild bleach and vinegar.
Use caulk to seal the windows, doors, and other cracks in the home. Install weatherstripping under the doors as well. In addition to insulating your home, lowering your energy bills, and making your home more comfortable, this keeps ants from crawling into your home through small openings. Apply ant deterrent near entryways only if you do not have any dogs, cats, or other pets that might eat these toxic substances.

Bed bugs are evolved insects that can stay alive for months without feeding once. They are able to withstand a wide range of temperatures and they reproduce very quickly. Many people know they have bed bugs when they wake up and notice red, itchy bites that weren’t there when they went to bed. Once a bed bug bites you, it only takes a couple of minutes to extract a full meal’s worth of your blood. To see a bed bug bite up close, watch this video clip.

Did you know that bed bugs are able to live for months without feeding? There are many truths and myths out there regarding bed bugs. Continue reading to separate bed bug truth from fiction.
Only Dirty Homes Get Bed Bugs
Anyone is prone to getting bed bugs. They have been found in tidy homes and offices as well as cluttered ones. Unsanitary conditions do not cause bed bugs, but getting rid of clutter can help to reduce the number of places in which bed bugs can hide.
Bed Bugs Only Live on the Bed
The name is misleading, because bed bugs can be found in many other places. In fact, bed bugs oftentimes live on couches, chairs, and other cushion furniture. They can be found anywhere that people sleep or lounge.
You Must Get Rid of Infested Furniture and Clothing
If you experience a bed bug infestation, you don’t have to get rid of your belongings that have been exposed to bed bugs. Pest control experts can treat furniture, clothing, and other items so that you don’t have to discard them.
Mattress Encasements and Other Products Prevent Bed Bugs
A mattress encasement prevents a mattress or box spring from becoming a home to bed bugs, but this does not prevent them from finding their way onto your bed to bite. If bed bugs cannot live in your mattress or box springs, they will just live somewhere else. If you purchase an encasement, keep in mind that this is not enough to prevent or treat an infestation. Unfortunately, there are many products out there that claim to treat bed bugs. Even the products containing pesticides will not effectively control a bed bug infestation—you must call the pest control experts to ensure complete extermination.
If you are concerned about a bed bug problem, call the pest control experts at the Center Termite & Pest Control of Los Angeles at (888) 476-9951. Visit our website to learn more about the cutting-edge exterminating services we offer. We have more than 40 years of experience to offer you.
