The Q&A Archives: Grass and ants

Question: How do I control the ants in my lawn. I put down an insectide and that takes care of them for awhile (2 weeks) and then they come back. I have very sandy soil and fertlize and lime 2 X a year.

Answer: Broadcasting bait as often as necessary to control the population is about all you can do as a homeowner. Choose a bait such as Bushwhacker, which contains boric acid as the active ingredient. Wish I had more solutions!
