Guaranteed Ant Control
Lawn ants are a nuisance and one of the most common lawn pests. Ant control begins with a healthy and well-maintained lawn, but once the ants are established it’s best to use a liquid ant control application.
Ants themselves are usually not harmful to your lawn; in fact, they feed on aphids and grubs. It’s the ant hills they create which harm your lawn by exposing the grass’ roots, causing uneven soil and smothering grass around them. You may notice spots on your lawn which look more like hay than grass; this is caused by ant activity.
