About this deal

Mounds of earth that ruin the look of a lawn, make the surface uneven for mowing and potentially create areas of bare soil for weeds to colonise. Ant hills can disfigure lawns; they usually appear in summer, especially prevalent in damp conditions. The idea is that you sprinkle this powder on your lawn and it’ll cause decreased mobility in the ants and eventually they’ll die of dehydration.

Natural ant repellents that work as barriers: vinegar, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, chili powder, powdered citrus peels, and the essential oils peppermint, cedarwood, tea tree, vetiver, and orange. They will help you determine whether you need to purchase additional tools, such as a spreader or sprayer. I’ve used Diatomaceous Earth on carpets, hard surfaces and on my lawn and it does work, although I found on the lawn it took a few applications to get the job done. Nematodes are a purely biological solution, meaning that they target the ants, and the ants only – so the ecosystem of your lawn isn’t disturbed and you don’t have to use any harsh chemicals either!Ants in lawns are often overlooked as a major pest but they can cause significant damage to the health and look of your lawn and they can even influence the production of vegetables and ornamental plants in your garden. They contain nursery rooms where larvae are fed and looked after, food storages rooms and farming rooms. They attract feeding ants who take this poisonous food back to their nests, killing the nest while it’s small enough to not be a problem.

The top of the bottle opens on both sides, so you can shake the powder out through a large opening or through holes (a little like a larger version of a dried herb bottle). You can add canola oil or olive oil to the mixture to clog the ants’ spiracles (what they use to breathe) and suffocate them. Ants and their effect on a lawn can be a real nuisance, with their nesting and hills smothering grass plants and contributing to an uneven surface, at worst causing some yellowing from root damage,' says Jonathan Hill, Director and Lawn Expert, Rolawn.Unlike sprays and other liquid solutions, Nippon Ant Bait Station is totally enclosed and easy to use. Castes are categorised into “Queens” which are reproductive females; “Kings” which are reproductive males; and “Workers” and “Soliders”, both of which are non-reproductive/sterile females.
