Ants in my lawn – What should I do?

Ants are generally welcome in our lawns, but they can pose significant damage to turf grass. Controlling ants in the lawn becomes important where their nest building causes root damage to grass and unsightly mounds. Ant hills cause uneven ground and can impact the effectiveness of grass cutting.

Treating ants is a quick and effective process if carried out correctly. NEVER pour boiling water onto a lawn, this will kill the grass and will result in an unsightly dead patch which will need removing and reseeding. Using your garden spade push a slit into the nest, pull back to form a V and squeeze ant powder into the gap. Close over and stamp down. This will kill off the colony, however the nest will need retreating in around 6 months as ants will recolonise.

Any questions please just give us a call.
