Bugs & Pests Christine's garden Gardening


AntsAnts, Ants Ants … they are everywhere in my garden at the moment …

I thought I had got the main “nest” about 10 days ago and today I discovered another one on the other side of the house. So I spent my precious “gardening time” today once again with the sprayer, spraying ants! They seem to be particularly prevalent this year. I’ve never had such an ant invasion since we’ve lived in this house. What a pain!

So no time to repot all my pond plants which I was wanting to do today. That will have to wait for another day. The weather was also miserable here so I couldn’t take any nice photos. I wanted to show you how the pond plants look before and after re-potting. So it will have to wait for another day …

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

I’m just thinking – if you find an organic way to control the ants plase tell me – I’ll gladly change! When I went “ant-control-shopping” they had nothing natural or organic on the shelves. That doesn’t mean there isn’t anything, just that I don’t know about it.

Oh no! I have the same problem with hordes and hordes of ants – they are climbing the walls and going into the roof. I don’t know what to do without using poison. What are you using?

I’m typing on my I iPad. Very cool

hehe, very envious of the iPad!!

I am using DyAnt. Active ingredient is Pyrethoid. No, its not organic. Sorry, but I can’t take the ants – they are coming indoors too now. Its not bad to use though, has no smell whatsoever so my pets are not interested in it.
