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.
