There are plenty of DIY ant treatments on the market. However, it still pays to hire a professional.
“Spraying here and there” is not a solution. In fact, we advise our Cleveland customers against using sprays to treat ants, especially in the kitchen where the toxins can get on your food preparation surfaces.

10 Tips on How to Prevent an Ant Infestation:
Trim all branches and bushes close that are touching your home’s exterior. Ants can use these items to bypass the treated perimeter of your home.
Don’t over-mulch, especially right next to the building. Keep it to three inches or less.
Don’t leave tree stumps (or any wood) in your yard to decay.
If you store wood outdoors, try to avoid direct contact with the ground or right next to your home.
Keep an eye on decaying wood and replace damaged wood as necessary.
Keep your kitchen surfaces clean. Wipe up spills immediately.
Clean your pet’s food bowls regularly.
Monitor indoor humidity and establish a good water drainage system outdoors.
Get rid of any piles of leaves, twigs, fire wood, and bricks.
Don’t store firewood directly on the ground or too close to your home.
