Re: Ants

One time, my lawn was moving with ants. Try to find where they are coming from, and pour boiling water down the hole - there may be a few. Doing this cleared up the ants. They don't like being disturbed.

Re: Ants

Thanks Babstreefern
I have used boiling water on ants before when they were under slabs, will try it on the new lawn, thanks again, this is my first time on the forum and will use it again. Michael

Re: Ants

I've always found ant powder very successful and it's never appeared to do the lawn any harm. Squirt it down the holes and around the entrances so the ants carry it back down into the nests.

Re: Ants

Thanks Jane

My wife has been spraying Ant repellant down the holes, but will try ant powder as well, will try anything to get rid of them, without harming the lawn. thanks again.

Re: Re: Ants

I was given a tip by a gardener some years back which seems to work well!

Ants will not walk over talcum powder, so get the cheapest of the cheap for a few pence from your local pound shop.

If the ants are also getting indoors, but a ring of talc around where they are getting in and they're gone in moments
