Very Helpful Home Remedies for Garden and Yard Ant Control


 
Home Improvement,Environment,Family & Parenting
One of the most common household or yard pests has got to be the common ant. So long as you only see them outdoors, however, you might be able to use a home remedy to kill ants. If you see these, you definitely need to get rid of ants in the yard.

Of course, you will want to know the best way to get rid of ants outdoors. But you will also want to use something harmless on the garden because you don't want pesticides to get onto your vegetables. How to get rid of ant mounds is important information to have. But pesticides can contaminate ground water, which is definitely something you will want to prevent.

Before you decide to treat the ants in your garden, make sure you know what kind of ants they are. This social insect has many good qualities, but in large numbers they may be unwelcome guests in your garden.

How to Get Rid of Ant Mounds

The best way to get rid of ants outdoors would be to use pipe tobacco. To get rid of ants in yard, you can soak the tobacco in water overnight and make a tea with it. Discard the wet tobacco, and use gloves when handling the solution. Pour the liquid over the ant hills and soak them. The ants will die. Find any other hills and fill the holes with glue or baby powder. Use baby powder on any trail of ants you see. Those ants will die as well.

Another home remedy to kill ants is to mix boric acid and sugar together into a paste, about one tablespoon of boric acid to a cup of sugar. How to get rid of ant mounds is simply drop pieces of this paste near the hills or anywhere you see ants. They will feed on the poisoned sugar and take it back to their nest to the queen, which will wipe out the whole colony.

The best way to get rid of ants outdoors, however, is to not plant any of the plants that attract honeydew producing insects, like aphids. This is because ants love this honeydew and will stick around if they're present. Sprinkle leaves and flowers from sage, mints or tansy around the outside of your house or plants that are bothered by ants. These plants can also be used as a living barrier for ant control, bearing in mind that they are invasive in their growth habit and using cuttings from these plants as a barrier is more effective. Direct Controls

* Pour apple cider vinegar down entrance holes to the nest.

* Using a sugar soaked sponge works well for light invasions of ants. Use a large sponge with big holes in it. Soak it in a strong solution of sugar water and place it where you want to catch the ants. Rinse the sponge out every day in a container of soapy water. Fix it up with the sugar water again and repeat as often as necessary.

* Dust can last a long time. Their mode of action is to dehydrate the ants. They work slowly and are easy to use in tight areas such as cracks or crevices.

* Make a strong hot water and hot pepper tea. Use the hottest peppers you can find, finely chop them in a food processor, mix with hot water. Pour directly on the nest.

* Douse the nests with boiling water several times. Cruel and can be effective.

* Repeated flooding of the nest every few days using your garden hose can often be enough to get them to relocate. You must be persistent with this method.

* Make teas from tansy, cat mint, peppermint or sage to use as repellent sprays for ants.

* Use equal parts of sugar and baking powder. Place around ant infested area and nests.
