Preventing ant infestations in your garden is important. Remember, this is where you may hold events such as picnics and parties. In fact, do note that most ant infestations in your home will begin in your garden. Preventing garden ant infestations is also an indirect way of preventing ant infestations in your home.
One of the most natural methods of doing this is growing plants that will repel the ants. There are many species that have this quality, including chrysanthemums. You can use them to enhance the beauty of your garden as well as preventing ant infestations. It is advisable to grow them in areas where the ant infestations are most probably going to arise from. You can also create a natural barrier around the garden using these plants.
Crumbs of food should not be left in the garden after events such as parties and picnics. These crumbs will attract ants, as they act as the source of food for the ants. Part of this involves cleaning the garden soon after these events. If you happen to have any bins around the garden, make sure they are properly lined and that their lids fit perfectly. Any food thrown in the bins could attract ants if these measures are not put in place.
Preventing an ant infestation in your garden is important, and the above are the most effective ways of doing it. In case of an infestation, use an effective and ecofriendly deterrent such as EcoRaider® to get rid of them quickly and easily.
