I thought I would start my July Photo of the Day with photos of ants in my yard. No matter where I go, I see ants crawling around the ground and on plants of all types. They are amazing creatures and I try not to disturb them unless they are close to my house. Then I try a few strategies to get them to move further away. I found a couple of suggestions.
First, they don't like their nests to be disturbed and will move if there are disturbances a few days in a row. I found a huge nest next to my deck and decided to move them. I was digging a small flower garden so I dug the rocky soil where the ants lived and moved it about 10 feet away. I left the hole for a few days and there was no sign of ants around, so I filled the hole with soil and planted a few flowers. Hopefully, they won't come back to the same spot.
Second, I read that they don't like urine. When the urine gets on their nests, they move out. It has worked for me. :)
