Sly struggle with garden ants. Practical advice
With the arrival of the spring warm days, garden ants begin their stormy activities. Theybring a lot of inconvenience to avid gardeners. Fighting garden ants is not an easy task. To this must be approached with full responsibility. Consider how this is done.
Fight against garden ants
In principle, by themselves, these insects do not pose any danger to humans. Bad is another: they are the progenitors of the parasitic aphid. They herd it on juicy and young leaves of garden trees. Aphid sucks all the juice out of them, ruining the fruit tree. Here they are - garden ants! Combating them includes the following effective methods.
- Use poison for insects (for example, "Thunder"). Look for ant pests. Look carefully under the stones, under the bricks, near the garden ponds. Usually under the bricks, if you dig a little earth, you can find the laying of ant eggs. Scatter generouslythose are poison right on them, do not be greedy, let them get full! The method is effective. The very next day you will see an empty anthill. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that it will be possible to find all the anthills in the garden, since it will take a whole day to crawl around the lot on our knees, looking under every pebble, doshok, stump and so on.
- Garden ants, the fight against which can take you a whole day, do not sleep! Remember this! In this regard, I propose a more cunning way by which a passive struggle with garden ants takes place. Since these insects are still those of the sweet tooth, then lay a sweet poisoned ant bait under all the trees in the area. It is sold in all hardware stores. The cunning essence of the passive struggle lies in this: insects with a huge appetite will eat the fatal delicacy, return to their home, the anthill, and ... feed this muck on their own larvae! Here it is, the effect of a passive struggle! Both adult ants and their larvae suddenly die from indigestion ...
- In addition, the fight against garden ants can occur through chemical means, such as glue, all purchased in the same hardware store.This is done bynon-toxic means. How to use it? We apply a small strip around the trunk of a tree and watch the beginning ant fuss. They start to fuss around, crawling back and forth on the tree. The gel produces a strong deterrent effect on ants - they shy away from it in different directions! But all their attempts will be in vain - the gel around. It is necessary for an ant to touch it even with a paw, as an insect immediately adheres to a tree tightly. The more they fuss, the more they get stuck in the gel ... This is a very effective way of dealing with ants in the backyard!
It is possible and complex
These are perhaps the most successful options for the destruction of these pests in the garden. In addition, you can try a comprehensive struggle with them, that is, not a particular method, but a bit of everything. Your ants just fly off the coils!
