Many times an ant problem can be completely solved by simply forcing the ant colony to move to another location in or outside of the yard.
There are a number of techniques and products available for dealing with ants. We present those solutions in three groups, do-it-yourself solutions using no insecticides, using natural insecticides and using synthetic insecticides. All solutions presented are considered safe by our authors for use in the home landscape. There are some products on the market that we do not recommend because so many effective options exist that are less toxic to the environment.
