    Ok, I’m a terrible gardener, I’ll admit. Still, when I went out to weed (again) my “empty” garden before plucking up the courage to go out and buy something to plant in it I found out that one of the beds is infested with a colony of tiny ANTS. Any help out there?

    This is a pretty good link and is full of ideas. I usually try to flood them out with a water hose.

    Dawn dishwashing detergent mixed with water. Kills fleas, ants and more. Fast.

    It also gets rid of the paths/trails the ants make and follow.

    I decide on the strength of the mixture by how upset I am with the insects.

    It makes a great insecticidal soap.

      jackmo4rn,

      I had no idea Dawn dish washing detergent was so effective. Thanks for the tip.
