Ants

8 posts in this topic

My yard is full of ants, can anyone recommend a good product that will get rid of them? Thanks

I would recommend any of the products that act as a food. Usually they come in a pellet form. The worker ants take the food back to the colony, and poof, no more ants.

fishuhalik, would you mind telling me what product it is exactly that you use that makes the ants go "poof"?

I have used so many different products when I was a golf course superintendent and never found a product that lasts more then a couple weeks or so...granular and liquid.

Now in my own lawn, I have ants and they can get bad. I use a liquid product from Lesco called Bifen I/T which i applied on Wed. last week and it seems to get me the best results and it isn't to expensive...still think I'll be doing another application in a few weeks.

Why bother? I guess I think they loosen the soil, eat stuff I probably don't want to have around. I think folks are too quick to croak critters a lot of the time.

If they get too close to the house a little Borax on the mound will clear them out fairly fast.

Problem is, they are over taking my house, and I don't know about you, but I don't like living with ants.

watch out, ants love wet wood. Make sure your house is staying dry, and all landscape wood mulch is away from the house.

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
