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.

    Hi Naretha,

    You might try some worm juice fertiliser on your dry patches. I did this a while back and it worked wonders!
