Causes and Solutions for Odorous House Ant Infestations

Ants will often enter homes in Tennessee to look for shelter and warmth during rainstorms.  They can also enter your home through crawl spaces and basements that are not properly sealed looking for food and water. To completely get rid of ants from your home or business you need to locate the nesting area and eliminate the ants from the colony.  This can be a hard to do without the help of a professional exterminator since there may be satellite nest located away from the main colony which would lead to the ants returning.  Preventing ants in the future requires that you make sure your basements and crawl spaces have been sealed. Also you can make sure to store food in air tight containers and keep fruits stored in your fridge.
