When was the last time you cleaned your gutters . . . or had them cleaned? Last week, last month . . . LAST YEAR??? I tell people all the time how important it is to clean their gutters to reduce the moisture in and around their home, especially in times of drought like we’ve had in the last few months here in Fayetteville, Georgia. (Gutter cleaning is important for lots of other reasons, also . . . including termites).
WELL, I guess I need to practice what I preach. Watch this video to see what I found in MY gutters when I was up there this weekend cleaning them out before the next thunderstorm.
That’s a whole lot of ANTS! After I put the camera down and continued cleaning the gutters, I actually found some happy centipedes crawling around in there, too. Luckily I caught them and got rid of them BEFORE they got into my house, but that isn’t always the case.
Most of the time if ants have just gotten into the house, finding the trail and nesting site OUTSIDE is the quickest way to get rid of them. THE PROBLEM IS, too often the home-owner fights the good fight against ants from the inside of the home only for such a long time, the ants get so comfortable they actually begin to NEST inside YOUR home. Once the population has gotten to that point, its usually too late for a homeowner to get rid of them without professional help.
