Diagnose your lawn
If you need to contact one of Forevergreen Canada's experts about a problem with the appearance of your lawn, here are photos and information that will be certainly very useful.
Small mounds of dirt
Small mounds of dirt on the surface of your lawn and presence of many ants.
Period when symptoms appear
From beginning to late summer.
Ants do not cause direct damage to the lawn and are even excellent insect predators. However, they can be a nuisance when they produce mounds of dirt or when they spread into houses.
- Aerate, then spread a thin layer of soil.
- Increase mowing length.
Use ant traps.
It is very difficult to control ants using insecticides because they live in the soil, sometimes deep down, and it is difficult to get the product into the nest. We recommend you contact the professionals at your local Forevergreen Canada branch.
