Ants MarchingHow to Prevent Ants?

If you have an ant problem "shut down the buffet".  Leaving food crumbs and or open containers will attract ants.  Keep the sink clean by not leaving dirty dishes or standing water.  This will also attract ants.  Seal windows, doors, and any cracks that ants can crawl through.
