Black ants all over my acer.

Posted: 09/04/2015 at 21:42

Dove is right they are symbiotic!  They help each other.

Is it in a pot?

Ants hate water so try and over water is you have good drainage. You know what i mean over water the ants not the plant.

If not there are other solutions. 


Homemade compost full of seeds / weeds

Posted: 09/04/2015 at 21:17

Unless you have a hot compost bin (one that raises the temp to kill the seeds when composting) Then you will always have the problem of weeds. (just like the rest of us)

You can heat it up over a fire or microwave but that kills all the good microbes in the soil.

You will just have to get used to hoeing if you want the best benefits to the soil.

We all do it.

There is no easy answer.

Are are they selling out.

Strange that this is the first I have heared???

You can get bulk bags, now. The Chinese use them and drag huge tillers of bagged water back over there to fill the biggest hydro dam, ever built. ( they do not have enough water to run it or clean it ) They take it as part off the American debt to them!

Transporting clean water, by ship and leaving the crap to be sorted by nature. Unfortunately. The price of cleaning water is huge compared to just exporting dirty (salt) water. The Chines have enough of that!

Cheaper to import clean water, with the debt that we owe!

Non so blind as those that will not see. ( or can't see )

Just look at the biggest Hydro dam in the world?

It only works if they have the water!


Don't believe me! Look up biggest hydro dam in world and see.

P.S. I am quite mad apparently.

Lawn mostly moss

Welcome akh71.

Its not too late and now is the perfect time.

Yes weed,feed & moss killer can be used but I find it expensive. I only use Lawn Sand if need be. It's a moss killer and cheap.

I would aerate and scarify the lawn first. Try this video from this site.

Hope it helps.
