We’ve all been there: you look out over the paradise that is your garden, at your hours and hours of toil and hard work at keeping its grass green and flowers blooming, only to realise that ants, termites, spiders, wasps, and all manner of other unwanted pests have come to infest your hard work like an invading army.
Not all insects can be pests – some can even be helpful to gardens or to the aphid ecosystem as a whole – but still, it is up to you to know how comfortable you are with your garden, lawn, or landscaping project feeling like a neighbouring kingdom for the unseen menace that is an unwanted insect population.
Obviously it can be a simple process to hire an exterminator or pest control professional to remove the unwanted creepy crawlies in your garden after the fact. But if you’re interested in avoiding the expense, or in considering insect control within the process of gardening or landscaping in general, here are a few tips on how to keep some of the more common outdoor pests under control.
Although they might seem like the endless marauders of the insect world, ant control can be relatively easy. Their small, sandy nests are unmissable, and can be eradicated simply by pouring boiling water in them, or else spraying simple insecticides deep in the grooves of your garden pathways and pavers. If you’re working with landscapers or earthworkers, you might consult on how to renovate your pathways or else lay down new, stronger materials that are harder for ants to burrow through.
But ants can also become more troublesome the deeper into your garden itself they live in digging the tunnels of their colonies through the roots of your plants. Here, it can be better to resort to natural solutions to keep your plants from being damaged by insecticides themselves. Ants have a natural dislike of peppers, jam, honey, Borax, and sugar water, so laying some down among your plants can help shoo them from the area.
