Steinernema feltiae, commonly described here as ant nematodes can be used as a non-chemical control for ants. Safe to children, pets and wildlife. The nematodes are produced by BASF in the UK.
How to Apply
Apply when ant activity is visible on the soil surface, which is typically from April through to September.
Ensure the soil temperature is above 10ºC (50°F). Locate the ant nest(s) and pour the nematode solution directly into each nest, using a watering can with a very coarse rose or a nematode applicator.
Soak the treated nests with water immediately after application.Make sure the nests do not dry out for at least two weeks after applying nematodes.
