Hello I was wondering if anyone else is having the same problem with Ants? Already they have started coming in to our house. We had thousands last summer. Our neighbour last year had sprinkled powder around the house and pipes etc. We try to do everything as environmentally friendly as possible. We have created a small wildlife garden. All the surrounding gardens to us have tidy graveled, paved, decked gardens. We used to have hedgehogs using the hog box, producing babies, feeding in our garden almost every year. Sadly we have not had one for the last two year. Fortunately and proudly we have great variety of regular birds and at least 30 sparrows. Also small mice which we try to keep quiet about, SHH, they are very entertaining and clever. We have three - 5 year old gold fish in our small pound a resident frog in our garden. My concern is that some people may say I am causing the Ant problem. Any good suggestions will be most welcome to solve this Ant problem before the weather gets warmer, but obviously as environmentally and kindly as possible. Before I get in to trouble!!! Many thanks.
