Keep Ants from Ruining Your Summer Picnic

July 28, 2017

A favorite summertime ritual for many is when you pack up the kids, grab a basket full of food, and take your family on a day trip to the beach or to a country setting where you can relax and enjoy the great outdoors while eating the yummy sandwiches, cold chicken, and pastries you tucked into your basket. You spread out your blanket, set down your picnic basket, and frolic in the grass with your kids playing tag, flying kites, or hitting the wiffle ball. Nothing could possibly be finer!

Inevitably, however, while you are enjoying some quality time with your children, ants are finding their way to your blanket attempting to enjoy YOUR lunch before you can get to it! These little pests turn your quality time into a race for the food! You wind up picking little black ants off your baggies and flicking them from your blanket the whole time you are eating.

A common mistake to make is to think that this is the only day that you will need to worry about ants. You may believe that you left ants behind in the waste basket at the park, but ants commonly live in neighborhoods all over America; and they commonly invade homes and businesses in their search for food, water, and a nice, weather controlled space to raise their young. And, if those ants happen to be large, black carpenter ants, you have a lot more to worry about than ants in your pantry since these ants can actually damage the structure of your home.
