Ants - are they active in your lawn?

Pests that prospered during 2012 were Slugs and Ants, and as soil temperature rises, now is a great time to consider a pro active control.

Ants in the lawn
These were are a big problem in lawns during 2012, whilst in only extreme cases do they kill a lawn, they easily disfigure the appearance of your pride and joy.

We would recommend the following control products:

Home Defence Ant Stop Granule (as a drench):
Ant Stop! Granules are a highly attractive bait that ants take back to their nest to kill the whole colony from one application.

These granules are versatile and easy to use, reduces mess and waste associated with powder. It kills by contact, ingestion and by being taken back to the nest.

Application Time: When first noticed, a proactive approach works best. ANTSTOP!® Granules contain Spinosad, an active ingredient derived from natural soil bacterium.

This product is not designed to kill ants instantly, so they take the ANTSTOP! back to the nest and the entire colony is destroyed.

Nemasys No Ants:
The nematode works on the ants in your lawn work by aggravating rather than killing the ants, prompting them to move on. Key success criteria is keeping the lawn moist and repeat applications during the season.

So exactly what is a Nematode? It's a natural organism, already present in our soil. They target specific garden pests giving us natural garden pest controls that are environmentally friendly, safe for children, pets and wildlife. All the nematodes in Nemasys range are naturally found in UK soil.

They are available on line through Amazon or other retailers and delivered direct to your door. (Check for latest stockists)
