Ants can pretty much breed everywhere, including your gutters. They can be costly to remove, and they may even affect your home’s vital components. Also, their bite can cause irritation and pain in both humans and pets.
In today’s post, your local chimney sweep, Chimney Doctors, discusses ways you can stop ants from living in your gutters.
Ants in Gutters
Ants, depending on the species, can live and multiply in different conditions. Some may live on the ground; others can thrive in your walls while some can live in the gutters. They can be even more problematic in the warmer months.
Debris tends to build up in the gutters, making them an ideal habitat for ants. Of course, these insects won’t just stay in your gutters. Eventually, they will find their way into your home. They will have to be eliminated using specialized products.
Get Rid of Ants
Make sure that your gutters are free from debris. Leaves and dirt can give ants the sustenance they need to survive. Our team will thoroughly clean and clear your gutters to protect your home from pests and water damage.
Ants are attracted to moist surfaces, making proper gutter drainage important. There’s a big chance that they’ll live in areas with standing water.
It will also be helpful to keep bushes and trees branches back from your roof. Tree branches can give ants easy access into your home.
