The Q&A Archives: Large ant problem

Question: We have large ants outside on the deck and by the pool area. I have tried all types of granules and ant stakes. I cannot control them. Any suggestions?

Answer: Ants are generally considered beneficial in the garden so unless the problem is unbearable, I'd just allow them to continue doing their jobs. If they are invading your living space, though, it might be time to take desperate measures. It sounds as though you've done everything a homeowner can do and it might be time to call a pest control company. Certified pest control operators have access to chemicals that homeowners don't.
