Dust particles around the skirting window or from the ceiling will be an indication they are nesting in the roof space or behind the walls.

- If a potted plant has ants, consider creating a ‘moat’ barrier around them. Elevate potted plants inside a larger bowl full of water and detergent keeping them above the waterline.
