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.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
