Question: i have lots of ants.they are turnning the soil into sand.lots of holes all over and grass is not growing.what do i do?

Answer: Ants are usually considered beneficial in that they help aerate the soil. I would not expect the ants to be damaging the lawn, however since you are concerned I would suggest you contact your local Cornell county extension for assistance. They should be able to help you with the ants and also with determining what you need to do to get your lawn to grow better. I'm sorry I can't be more specific for you long distance.
