It’s happened to almost all of us at some point. You see one or two ants crawling around your counters and don’t think much of it until you come back a few hours later to find that your kitchen has been completely taken over by an ant infestation. When the weather warms up, ants start becoming more active, and trying to control an ant infestation on your own can be an exceedingly difficult task.
