Spot the anthill so you don't forget any ant!Generally, we do not know these small insects very well and we do not try to find out more. Our # 1 priority: get rid of it! Except that by knowing them better, it is much easier to keep the anthill away. By attacking only visible ants, you are exposed to a new infestation. Many ant births are already scheduled - and even in progress! Some ants stay in the nest to take care of the queen and the larvae, well hidden between the walls or in small nooks, and will come out in their turn to search for food. Before using any product, find out what attracted the ants and what they are looking for. They can come and get food, like a warm space, away from light. Then follow the ants to locate the anthill. You will thus have an overview of the area to be treated and avoid new infestations.

Ants in the garden: what to do?When ants settle in the garden, the question is a little different. It is important to preserve biodiversity and avoid toxic products. In addition to being dangerous for children and animals, they can also kill ants' predators. Especially since ants have their utility in the garden: they clean up by decomposing organic waste, aerate the soil and feed on other insects, larvae and eggs also considered harmful ... The ant is hardworking! On the other hand, ants raise aphids for the honeydew that they secrete and protect them from their predators. For ants to become your allies in the garden, simply select the plants that will need to be protected from aphids and ants. Add damp coffee grounds to the base, which will also repel slugs. And in addition to repelling insects, it is an excellent fertilizer for plants! You can also let a lemon mold at the foot of the plants most vulnerable to ants or cultivate next to lavender, a plant that ants do not like!
In the vegetable garden, ants are repelled, but they are not killed!
