:)I live in northern Illinois and have an ant problem in my yard.
:)In the past, I've had one ant colony (city, urban area?) that covers
:)an area of about 2-3 square feet with dozens of individual holes.
:)I have pretty much ignored this. But this year, I have two other large
:)areas of Ant mounds.
:)I use ant traps when I run across them in the house. I have excellent
:)results with this.
:)But, what can I use outside????
Most of the granulated ant baits will work ok for you, though they may
be slow working. If you go the way of diazinon, or any insecticide
granule, you will get almost immediate results by instead of
sprinkling the granules about the mound, put 1/2 cup of the granules
in an old gallon container, fill with water, mix, then saturate the
Lar. (to e-mail, get rid of the BUGS!!
