Q: Ants have invaded my kitchen. Now what?

A: Hire a pro. You can try a repellent like Raid first. Spray it along the baseboards around the perimeter of your kitchen, as well as along the outside perimeter of your house. But if the ants keep marching back, call an extermination service, which should cost about $75 per session.

The pros will target the problem area, and they’ll treat the perimeter both inside and outside your house to prevent the pests from returning. In fact, you should have a service come at the start of each season. Different types of bugs show up at different times, and this will ensure that you stay protected.
