    Anyone use any natural products that control any three of these or all?

    shades,
    i was thinking about trying that out this year also. anyone have any opinions or experience with that stuff (mosquito barrier)?

    what about deer scram, i think it is called? supposed to repel deer and rabbits.

    Lesco sells a organic insecticide that has capsaicin and mustard oil, which I have used as a contact control, but I do not know if it will work for ants.
