Are there any chemicals, home remedies, natural enemies that I can use to control ants? I think my whole growing area is on top of a HUGE ant hill. Every time I water, all the pots are covered with ants and I usually have a few on me by the time I am done. I want to spray with Liquid Seven but I have used Diazinon in the past. This seems to work for about 2 days and they are back. I think Diazinon merely displaces then and they return. I want something to KILL them with so there is nothing to return. Ants have a tendency to nurture the few aphids, etc. that I have and make them into a huge colony in no time.
