Ants taking over our buffalo lawn!

I have noticed a few ‘dry’ patches where ants infested our lawn, I applied 3:2:1 fertiliser a week ago followed by watering the garden… went away for 4 days only to return and half my lawn is ‘dead’! I now have large dry areas infested by ants with visible ant nests (looks sandy). What do I do to recover my lawn and how do I control or prevent this is future?

Please advice.

Hi Naretha. I know one eco-friendly way to get road of ants is to put down tobacco shavings, which you can get from most nurseries. Supposedly they can’t stand the smell and move away.
