Drought brings out the ants

May 23, 2007

Albany - - The drought is causing another pesky problem at many homes.

Exterminators say because of the dry weather, ants are on the prowl. Adams Exterminators is getting plenty of calls from customers complaining about the problem. 

"The ground infesting ants like fire ants. Their food sources are dwindling because of the dry conditions and they're looking for alternate food sources," says Exterminator Davis Reed.

He says if you have an ant problem, find out where they're coming into your home. It may be through cracks or cervices in your windows or even through an outside water faucet.

Ants can also get in from shrubbery touching the outside of your home.
