Ants, ants and more ants
Our entire long drive seems to be one huge ant nest, piles of dust between the flags; they are under every flag in the patio in the garden, they move into my potted trees and vegetables. They farm any aphids on the trees Everywhere I dig in the garden I find nests. I used nematodes to move them away from the house door. I've tried diatomaceous earth, ant killers of various sorts in areas where my dog doesn't go and numerous things I've read online like washing soda. When they swarm our entire front door and the wall around has been black with them. Help! Does ANYTHING work? I really, really hate ants. They are the only creature n the garden that I can't stand. We can't even sit on the lawn and if I pick flowers they have to be left outside until the ants all drop off. They are even in the dandelions I have nightmares about them getting into the house. In fact we had some in the bathroom last week. I had to put ant killer round the skirting board.
