Greener Gardens are delighted to offer a selection of effective control for Ants within the lawn and around the home.
Although not as harmful to turf as wormcasts, ant hills can disfigure lawns. They usually appear in summer, especially prevalent in damp conditions and should be dispersed by brushing the soil when dry. This will avoid smearing them on the lawn when mowing. Over time left untreated the lawn may become uneven. Ants can also damage roots which may cause yellowing.
Ants can be controlled by treating with either biological nematodes or chemical treatments.
We supply a ready to use ant bait station which has been specifically developed for the control of ants. The ant bait consists of sugar and honey combined with the active ingredient forming part of the special bait matrix which attracts the ants to feed on it and take the bait back to the colony. Colony eradication can be expected within 7-14 days after treatment, depending on the size of the infestation.
Key benefits include:
Apply 1 to 4 bait stations per nest. Place bait stations next to nests where ants forage so that the bait can be taken back to the nest.
The bait station should be placed in a horizontal position where ants can be seen foraging for food.
If the nest cannot be found, apply 1 to 4 bait stations per 5 square metres.
Each trap contains application instructions.
