About this deal

An alternative to nematodes is Diatomaceous Earth which is the crushed remains of fossilised diatoms. This is usually used on the first stage when you first find the ants and just want to remove them from the area. With Over Twenty Years of Pest Control Experience, Our Team Is Here To Help With Any Pest Infestation You Might Be Facing!

Since ants usually appear in summer when we are mowing regularly, it is advisable to brush or rake away the soil when it is dry. Even if there's a swarm of ants in one place, this isn't necessarily the location of the nest, so observe the ants for a while and see where they head back to. The bait contains two different food granules to appeal to a wide range of ant species and maintain attractiveness as their food preferences change. The challenge with using ant baits is that you need to choose bait attractive to the species of ant causing the problem – each species of ant has slightly different food preferences and these preferences change throughout the year.Ants like to feed off Honeydew which is secreted by Aphids (sap-sucking insects) as they feed on plant sap. Thankfully, all the products recommend above are extremely effective best ant killers for lawns, and will help take back your yard from ants! 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. Baits are an obvious choice, and there are even some baits made especially to withstand outdoor climates and weather. If you’re applying nematodes yourself, make sure to mix them well beforehand, following the instructions on the packaging.

By raking the mounds and spreading the dirt around, you can continually disturb the ants and their network of tunnels and entrances, making it less likely that they stay.

Adding some to the perimeter of your home will help prevent ants (and other pests) from making your home theirs. Nematodes are a purely biological solution, meaning that they target the ants, and the ants only – so the ecosystem of your lawn isn’t disturbed and you don’t have to use any harsh chemicals either!

Erasing the scent of those pheromones with vinegar will encourage ants to leave your home and yard alone. The pest control experts will place the bait near the infested surfaces and then wait for the insects to ingest it and bring it back to the rest of the colony. Sooty Mould is a secondary disease caused by excess honeydew remaining on the leaf surface and is a good indication of this kind of pest attack. Are you dealing with ants in your lawn that have become a nuisance or even are biting you and your family? Ants form a symbiotic relationship with honeydew producing and plant-sap-sucking insects such as Aphid, Scale, Psyllid, Mealybug, Whitefly, and Leafhoppers.Thankfully, this effective ant killer that comes in liquid form comes ready to use, thus streamlining application. In all cases, wait until a treated area has dried before allowing children and pets into the toxic zone.

In the garden, ants help to aerate the soil, to break down dead plant material and to eat pests such as mites and lava. However, using large amounts of baking soda directly on your grass could potentially disrupt the pH balance of the soil and lead to some browning or damage. A couple of drops of cinnamon oil in a spray bottle filled with water will be enough to deter ants and other pests from your plants. The slow acting insecticides allow the ants to consume all the bait before they experience any toxic effects.We advocate taking a holistic approach which involves managing their activity rather than killing them.
