None of my tubs have done very well this year and have found out why , virtually everyone has an ants nest !! Oh well the hens love ants eggs so they are busy raking thru' the debris so at least some good has come out of it

Well my tubs are OK but we reckon the whole of the front of the house is one big ants nest !!!! Regularly put ant stuff down but does it make a differnce ? No !!!!

I blame the weather, never seen so many ants before.
Don't mind them in the garden, i pour boiling water around the edge of the patio just before we eat outside, don't like to eat with ants crawling around my feet.

Had to take down the window boxes as they were crawling up the wall and would come in the house if the window were open.

Next door was walking around his garden the other week with jiffy (sp) lemon juice, trying to kill them.Told him it wouldn't work as my lemon tree was covered in ants.

Talk about ants in my pants, I've had the same problem - ants in window boxes, tubs etc and I think they were the cause of my runner beans failing this year.

Horrendous this year !!
Usually don't bother about them but had to take action this year as they were ruining so much hard work.
Loads of flying ants also which are a real pain in the butt !

It's strange. Usually every Summer I get an invasion into the sitting room near the patio door but none so far this year. Hope I haven't spoken too soon.

Hi I find it helps to soak the tub completely with water or hose it thoroughly. Most of the ants come out before they drown

oops, seem to have made a mistake previously!!

If you put a bottle of clove essential oil into a watering can full of water, you can then water the infested pots/ plants/whatever, and that will rid you of the ants as they hate it.

Borax. Just sprinkle where they are being pesky and then no more!

Good luck and hope you have better luck next year.
