Use baits, not perimeter sprays. Early season baiting for ants is effective to keep ant populations from getting out of hand. For outside control starting in February:
-- Locate nests and apply baits.
-- Baiting outside keeps ants outside, but sometimes it is necessary to bait inside; place bait inside only where ants are entering the room.
-- Trim trees and apply caulking in cracks to eliminate access to buildings.
