Ants, Ants and more Ants

Post  smileandbehappy on 7/7/2012, 5:45 am

I'm new to gardening and this year I have decided to grow as much lettuce,spinach and courgettes as I can in pots, as well as a few tomatoes. I have planted, carrots, radishes, onions, shallots, parsnips and tomoatoes in the ground, along with a few herbs. Well, the spinach in the pots has bolted and is infested with ants. Some of the lettuce leaves are doing lovely as well as a couple of large lettuces. But I just have ants everywhere amongst everything and everwhere I look there are ants! Please can someone help and give me some advice as to what can I do to get rid of them. Many thanks guys.

p.s. I live in central France.

Welcome to the forum. Have you seen or read the ALL NEW SQUAREFOOT GARDEN book. It is the how to manual for folks on this forum. A former regional host lived in France. Check out the regional forums for additional local info.

There is a search feature on the lower left. There have been several threads about ant control.
