We recently had our backyard graded after building an addition to our house. We plan to put down sod in the next month (once we can get rid of some of the rocks and roots that are now
showing up). In the last few weeks, there are ant hills appearing daily. Many ant hills. What is the best way to get rid of them at this stage? Would a liquid spray work better than a granular bait? I am going to use a barrier treatment around the house, but feel I need to do something on the hills themselves. All the rain we are having isn't helping matters, either.
Does anyone have a good, easy, inexpensive way to keep squirrels out of large pots that, for now, contain dirt and veggie seeds? They jump in the pots and dig, not giving the poor seeds a chance to sprout!
I have used foggers for the house, yet these bugs are always there. I can be walking in the house and see one crawling up the wall or around items in bathroom. I then spray them directly. I just want them gone...
