Barb Writes,
06/02/2010:

What can I use to get rid of big black ants in my yard?

I was cutting my grass and thought the ground was moving-it brought them up to the top of the grass and they appeared to be swarming. what is best to use. It's in different areas of my yard, not just one place.

Answer:

You may want to consider using the Advance 375A ant bait granules. This type of ant bait granule can be broadcast all over your yard or you can use it on individual mounds and it is labeled for most ants. Using ant bait is beneficial because (unlike sprays that only kill the ants you see), ants consume the bait and carry it back to the nest, feeding it to all the other ants including the queen getting rid of the colony.
