Can't Get Rids of Ants in Garden

Ask a Question

Am not having the best summer with bugs this year first wasp nest. Now about 5 ant nests have tried so many stuff and they not going. Today they were flying ones too

Anyone have any suggestions maybe I may have used but will let you know.

In the hot weather ants can be a nuisance. The flying ants seem to 'swarm' on one day a year, or at least they used to where I lived before so if they have just done it, it should be over and done with by now.

I have found that the only really effective way of getting rid of ants (outside) is to pour boiling water over the eggs - if you can find them!

I couple of weeks ago we woke to find a few in our kitchen and have read up on them. Apparently they don't like cinnamon and we read that a cotton wool ball soaked in a water & cinnamon solution wiped around an area would keep them at bay but I haven't tried it yet so can't say if it true or not.

Wasps are another matter and I think you would have to call in 'pest control'.

I hope you get rid of or at least reduce your problem soon. πŸ’ 🐞

I think you might be able to get Ant Killer and just spread where there are a whole load, normally like a powdered format.

I ended up with an ant invasion in my hall after my partner had pressure washed the drive. We live in a bungalow so they must have managed to come up from under the floor I used baby talcum powder

There's only one thing that works in our house and that's Staykill flea spray. We discovered it a few years ago when we fostered a kitten while the owners-to-be were on hols. The pretty little thing left us with fleas for weeks after. (and I'm not even a cat person!) This spray was recommended by a Vet who told us it works on ants too. It's not cheap per can but lasts a long time and it works.

This stuff has always worked for me:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nippon-Ant-Killer-Liquid-25g/dp/B000TAUBSC/ref=sr_1_2

You need to put the liquid gel on a smooth surface like an old piece of tile, china or glass.

Replace regularly, especially after rain

  • Destroys compete ant colonies without trace
  • Worker ants carry the bait back to the nest
  • Useful where the nest site is unknown
