My room is always clean but for some reason, ants seem to lurk around my window sill. What should I do about it? I admit, I do eat a meal in there once in a while because my TV is in there, but I always take the plates back to the kitchen - but there are no ants in there? Is this strange?
It is possible that the ants are nesting outside your room and getting in through the window sill. It is recommended that all the holes and cracks in the window sill should be sealed to prevent the ants entering your room. Applying any type of powder will deter ants from moving around the window sill area. If this does not work, application of an ant bait in this area will take care of this infestation. Ant baits are available from local supermarkets and garden/nursery shops. Good luck.
