Outdoor Maintenance: Trim vegetation away from your house, as branches and leaves can provide bridges for ants. If the ground is dry and you prefer to apply as a liquid, prepare the ground before hand with a wetting agent to aid penetration of the ant killer solution.

Their activity is also a natural pest control and can increase the tilth of soil, acting as wild aerators to loosen the dirt around roots and enhance growth.But please don’t be tempted to irrigate your lawn so often that it’s too wet for ants to thrive in – if it’s too wet for ants, it’s probably also too soggy for grass to thrive in. The ants sense the nematodes and see them as parasitic predators, so they usually migrate far away, but it’s best to treat the entire lawn, so they don’t set up a home within your grounds again. When you’ve tried all the natural remedies you can think of and your ant infestation still persists, it’s time to turn to chemical insecticides. So, my preference is always to prevent or resolve these types of problems with natural means rather than harmful remedies. Skipping this step may be tricky since you might end up purchasing an ant killer that’s ineffective for the species of ants in your yard.

He has experience in dealing with lawn pests, including chafer grubs and ant hills, the latter of which caused his lawnmower blades to wreck the grass. This includes cutting off ants’ access to fruit gardens, making sure that they can’t get inside your home, and keeping them away from water sources.Vitax Nippon Ant Killer Sachets are a fast easy and effective way to treat ants in lawns, on patios and paths. Premium product a Fast acting Ant Killer an insecticide unlike the powder formula's this is granular for use against ants, in domestic and other premises a ready to use insecticide bait that kills ants and their nests. A professional can assess the situation and recommend the best course of action to eliminate the infestation while minimising harm to the environment and other wildlife.

Summer is when we spend the most time outside and ants are certainly not something we want crawling on us when we are trying to enjoy our garden. Wet soil is harder to shift, you can’t spread it because it smears and could trap the grass under it. Ants are colony insects which settle in large groups and build vast labyrinth like structures in the grass roots systems. Nests can also be also built aboveground and appear as mounds of soil and/or small stones, while others are hidden below ground. Its strong smell disturbs the pheromones ants use to communicate and find their way to food sources and then back to the nest.Robert Collins has worked as a professional pest control officer for over 20 years and has represented MyJobQuote as a pest control expert for over 4 years. Ant baits will take longer to work than contact insecticides but are usually more effective at taking out entire colonies. If you’re applying nematodes yourself, make sure to mix them well beforehand, following the instructions on the packaging. Unlike powder its designed to be taken back to the nest to iradicate the whole nest, the bait does not act fast this is to gives time for the ant to go back to the nest with the bait this will then be shared throughout the colony. To evade painful bites and stings avoid setting up a picnic or laying on areas where Ant activity is observed and/or known.

Nematodes are capable of surviving the odd frost; so don’t worry if the temperature falls after you have applied them. As we know the ant hills are nothing more than excavated soil that has been left on the surface of your lawn. Nests can be built into an elaborate tunnel system made up of chambers for different housing purposes. The only con of using this product is that you’ll need some learning curve to use the wand and spray bottle.This ready to use barrier spray should be applied evenly over Ant prone surfaces, such as door entrances, window sills, cracks, crevices and around foundations, until moist. Ants are so wired to work together that you could even think of an ant colony as one big superorganism. Baits are an obvious choice, and there are even some baits made especially to withstand outdoor climates and weather. Ant species this method works for: All common pest species except wood-boring carpenter ants and acrobat ants already in the walls of a home; need special fire ant baits for effective fire ant control. Had I found the nest, it might have eradicated them, but, as it is, I have no doubt they will all appear next year.
