Problem: Ants (Lawns)
Ants live underground in hot, dry areas of the lawn. They do not feed on grass, but when numerous, they may damage the plants in several ways. The mounds of soil in their hills smother and kill grass plants. As the ants tunnel among grass roots, the soil may dry out, also killing the plants. Ants feed on newly planted grass seeds and sometimes store the seeds in their nests. Some ants, especially fire ants and harvester ants, bite people and animals. Most become a nuisance when they travel from their mounds and invade homes.
Once the ants have disappeared after treatment, level and reseed any bare or dead spots.
