The trail they leave from their home to the food source is called pheromone, which is a chemical that is impervious to rain and sun and lasts for a long time. If the ants are gone, the trail to the food source remains. The initial steps to take for ant control is to expel the attraction. Food should be placed in sealed containers and the zone should be wiped clean with a little dish soap on a wipe. The garbage area should likewise be kept sealed and clean.
