Ant Hills

How do I get rid of ant hills. Every year they get worse. What should I spread to rid the ants?

we have been using talstar with good results. Make sure it is the EZ formula. The Ez is a larger pellet for ease of spreading. The regular formula is real fine, almost dust like.

Sevin seems to work well for me. I've used both the granular and liquid at my home. If you use granular make sure you water it in.

Ditto with the good luck using the Sevin in a one gallon sprayer on the turf and spot spraying, but I am going to try Talstar next.
