Rain, Rain Brings Ants Your Way

Rain, Rain Brings Ants Your Way

My husband and his friends are obsessed with rain. And we’ve had a lot here in Lititz, PA over the last two weeks. He rushes home each night to check the rain gauge and then compares rainfall amounts with his friends in nearby neighborhoods. I’m also very interested in the rain too, but for different reasons. I rush home each night and check… for ants.

Heavy rains can cause an increase in ant invasions in your home. Ants build their colonies underground, so naturally, when the soil becomes wetter and wetter, they need a safe, dry place to escape the rain and forage for food. Our Facebook page has been flooded (pun intended) recently with fans sharing pictures and videos of TERRO® liquid ant baits and liquid ant killer in action. And we’re pleased to say, their results have all been great!

So, have you had a lot of rain in your area? Have you seen more ants?
