About this deal

Baits are an obvious choice, and there are even some baits made especially to withstand outdoor climates and weather.

Usage: Using nematodes requires proper application techniques, including maintaining moisture levels to ensure the nematodes can move through the soil and find their target ants. Because water cools down quickly underground, it may not reach the deepest parts of the colony (where the queen usually lives) while still hot enough to be fatal on contact.I’ve used Diatomaceous Earth on carpets, hard surfaces and on my lawn and it does work, although I found on the lawn it took a few applications to get the job done. When large colonies of ants set up home in your lawn, they create ant hills, which for us lawn lovers can be very unsightly. Do not disturb feeding ants as it is essential they take the bait back to the nest and the rest of the colony.

Ants create numerous generations per year and their numbers in one colony can be in the hundreds or even thousands. Please note we only have a small ant problem, so this worked for me, however others seemed to have mixed views. For more information on controlling ants in lawns, please get in touch with our sales team on 0122 246491. An alternative to nematodes is Diatomaceous Earth which is the crushed remains of fossilised diatoms. Ants like to feed off Honeydew which is secreted by Aphids (sap-sucking insects) as they feed on plant sap.When you water your lawn with any kind of liquid during the day, you’re essentially magnifying the sun’s effects on your grass, causing burns and deterioration. Following the instructions on the label, spray the liquid or spread the granules in a perimeter around the foundation of your home and outdoor living spaces to keep ants out. We have had many red ants nests and found best way to keep at bay is to use plenty of buckets of water per nest with washing up liquid to dry out exoskeleton/skin and peppermint oil. Sprinkle baking soda or baby powder (you can use them interchangeably for this method) all around ant nests, inside anthills, and along ant trails.
