Nemasys No Ants can be used to deal with an ant infestation, without any of the precautions associated with chemical use. 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.

Erasing the scent of those pheromones with vinegar will encourage ants to leave your home and yard alone. Mow the lawn once a week during your grass’s growing season to the recommended height for your grass type. If you must use ant baits opt for non-toxic options that are safer for the environment and other wildlife. They can be dispersed by brushing the soil when conditions are dry, this will avoid smearing them on the lawn when mowing.

Also, don’t forget that you shouldn’t put weed killers, moss products and fertilisers on the lawn for at least 6 weeks as they will kill the nematodes.

How it works: The soap kills ants by disrupting their cell membranes and breaking down the protective wax coating they need to survive. NEVER pour boiling water onto an ants nest in your lawn – you’ll kill the grass and all of the wonderful soil microbes that help sustain a healthy garden. Depending on the type of ants living in your backyard, the exterminator may use one or several methods of ant extermination, choosing the most effective and least damaging treatment options. Thankfully, this effective ant killer that comes in liquid form comes ready to use, thus streamlining application. The bait contains two different food granules to appeal to a wide range of ant species and maintain attractiveness as their food preferences change.So, that’s why I got to work testing the best ant killers for your lawn, and which were the most effective without damaging your lawn or being dangerous to pets or family. Ant baits will take longer to work than contact insecticides but are usually more effective at taking out entire colonies. There may be one or more Queens and many Kings in a colony, both whose prime function is to start a new colony and breed.

In my experience, the Ortho Home Defense was the most effective lawn ant treatment that I used, it was extremely easy to apply and I saw results within a week! Wear the protective gear, measure chemicals out carefully and don’t be tempted to alter the recommended dosage. This is usually used on the first stage when you first find the ants and just want to remove them from the area. But you still shouldn’t have to deal with ants in your home or the parts of your yard where you spend time.For use indoors and outdoors, on floors, around cupboards, in cracks and crevices, along runs in and around nests, and at points of entry to the property. 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. The manufacturer grounds this ingredient into a fine powder, formulating a fast-acting insecticide that shreds an ant’s exoskeleton within 48 hours. This can be fairly rough on your lawn, unlike grass-nourishing DE, so you may want to use this carefully. For outdoor ant colonies, remove the top of the anthill and pour the insecticide directly into the ant nest to kill the ants remaining underground.

Some Ants have a stinger at the tip of their abdomen which may be used to spray or inject poisonous secretions. They make the lawn uneven and can cause scalping when the grass is mown, resulting in the soil being smeared over the lawn. Ant hills left untreated will make your lawn uneven, they can be dispersed by brushing the soil when conditions are dry, this will avoid smearing them on the lawn when mowing. There are plenty of eco-friendly, non-toxic, and cost-effective natural home remedies you can try first.But once ants build a nest, they colonise rapidly, so the sooner the treatment is completed, the less damage there will be to the grasses and lawn appearance. 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. Let us help you get rid of moss and let your lawn grass thrive and grow with our expert help and guidance. Simply raking out the hills will scatter the population and can reduce hardened mounds from occurring. We advocate taking a holistic approach which involves managing their activity rather than killing them.
