Ant control depends upon the type of ants you have in the lawn. You can pour boiling water on the mounds but this will also kill any grass it contacts. Or you can use Combat or Spectracide ant bait products, according to label directions. You can seed your lawn when the temperature remains above 40F. Grass seed will sprout at those low temperatures but will sprout faster when the weather is warmer. So, you can seed in mid to late April and have a terrific lawn by early summer.
