Black, red and yellow ants are all found in our gardens. Towards the end of July, swarms of flying ants look for a mate and a place to start a nest. Black ants have large nests of up to 7,000 ants, nesting indoors, under paving and alongside lawns. Red ants are aggressive and can sting if disturbed. Yellow ants create large unsightly mounds in lawns.
- Compatible with organic gardening
- Easy to use, just add water
- Ants do not tolerate the nematodes near their nests and move their nests away from these areas.
Ants are not killed by Nemasys® Biological no ants, but they leave the area that has been treated.
