Certainly, if you have children and pets, you want them to be able to enjoy playing on the lawn without getting bitten. Outdoor Maintenance: Trim vegetation away from your house, as branches and leaves can provide bridges for ants.

Whereas it’s never possible to guarantee you’ve treated the whole nest, the aim is to ‘flood’ the nest with insecticide and spraying for about 30 seconds per nest entrance is a good guide. How it works: The goal here is to fill the ants’ underground nest completely with water, drowning all the ants inside. Ants prefer drier soil, always keep the soil moderately moist where seeds have been sown, this will also help to promote faster germination.Simply sprinkle these substances around ant mounds or along ant trails to create a barrier that ants will avoid. To ensure the safety of your grass, it’s recommended to mix lemon juice with water in a ratio of about 1:1 or even more diluted, and then apply it to ant trails or areas where you want to discourage ants. Natural Barriers: Create a barrier around your lawn using substances ants dislike, such as cinnamon, coffee grounds, or chalk. Are you dealing with ants in your lawn that have become a nuisance or even are biting you and your family? Hopefully the ants will take some to the main one and then be got rid of, early to say yet though as quite a few of the horrible ants.

Mounds of earth that ruin the look of a lawn, make the surface uneven for mowing and potentially create areas of bare soil for weeds to colonise.

Stage 3- Ant bait stations: can be left around the garden/house for any remaining ants to feed on and take back to the nest.

Consider other life forms – you don’t want to be contaminating water courses with anything that might upset the eco system, neither do you want to harm beneficial insects or any creatures that might make a meal of the dead ants. For example, in our pet safe ant killer guide we recommend more indoor treatment options which are designed for smaller more precise spaces, which wouldn’t necessarily work to protect your lawn from ants. Keep in mind that nematodes are most effective against certain ant species and may not work as well against others.

Ants work like an army and are an intriguing insect but they can deposit appreciable amounts of soil on your lawn (a bit like mini molehills), which can then cause problems. After a few days, the powder can be swept into the lawn, but I usually wait until the anthill has been vacated or the ants in the lawn are dead. The aspect of it being ready and easy to use contributes to the biggest selling point of this ant killer. There are some granular ant baits that, when scattered over the opening of the nest, will be picked up by workers and taken in to be shared with the rest of the colony. Wait until the ant mounds are dry, then sweep them away with a brush so that the fine soil is evenly distributed across the lawn.

We advocate taking a holistic approach which involves managing their activity rather than killing them. Ants in lawns are often overlooked as a major pest but they can cause significant damage to the health and look of your lawn and they can even influence the production of vegetables and ornamental plants in your garden.
