The COVID-19 pandemic has been going on for months, with no easy end in sight. We’re all being actively encouraged to remain at home as much as we can to stay safe until our experts determine an effective solution, and we definitely want to make sure that we’re all comfortable as we deal with the problem. No two families have the same idea of what makes an ideal home, but our team at The Bug Man is pretty confident that an ant infestation is always unwelcome!

We’ve been the leading provider of pest control in Arkansas since 1976, and we’re always here to help you with lawn pest control or in-home infestations. We’re still open for business, and are always a phone call away when you need us. We offer legendary customer service, and stand behind our work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. The good news is that infestations are often easy to prevent before they start. Here are a few easy things that you can do on your own:

Be careful how you store your food-You shouldn’t ever have any problems with ants in your refrigerator or freezer, but be sure that bulk grains and sweeteners are stored in clean, airtight containers. Bowls of fruit and vegetables are generally safe from ants as long as they’re fresh, but if they start to spoil, they can attract flies.

Deep clean your kitchen-Now that you’re home a lot more, it’s time to get to those cleaning tasks that you’ve been putting off. Clean under the fridge, the oven, and the range. Be sure to also sweep and wipe down your countertops, and take out the trash every time that you cook.

Mow your yard-Most insects start out in your yard, and prefer unmowed lawns and shrubbery. The closer that it gets to your home, the more likely they’ll get curious, and look for a way inside. This is also a good deterrent against larger animals like raccoons and Opossums, as well as would-be house burglars.
