This year ants seemed to be slow to build up their numbers....but all of a sudden everyone seems to be asking how to control them.
Ants create mounds of soil on lawns, can certainly make it difficult to sit on your lawn for a pic-nic or have a meal or drink anywhere in the garden....and although they don't directly attack plants, their excavations can loosen the soil around plant roots so much that the plants then suffer from drought and may even be killed!So what can you do? The best solution I know is a nematode biological control, Nemasys No Ants by name, and the great thing is that it is very effective but also totally safe - no risk to wildlife, pets or humans...in fact nothing except the ants are sorted.
You may decide to leave those nests in out of the way places uncontrolled - after all they're good food for green woodpeckers, but try treating with Nemasys No Ants on the nests in areas where you like to sit out, and in places where plants are being damaged.....at last , lunch in the garden without having to leap up and down as you get nipped by ants!
We've got it available now in two pack sizes, depending on the extent of your garden's infestation, take a look in the Products section of wwwpippagreenwood.com .......relief!
