I am an animal lover! I respect nature and I try to get along but when you bite up my babies and send them running inside unable to play in their own must DIE!!! Organically of coarse:) I tried Diatomaceous earth and I think my problem was to large and out of control for it. So I followed The Garden Guy's other advice and that was boiling water right down the whole in the middle of the day! IT WORKS!

See all those glistening black piles??? Those are Ants!!

BRING OUT YOUR DEAD!!!(name that movie) The surviving ants started "cleaning" out the tunnels and create piles of dead ants! I did this for 3 days in a row on all the hills and I'm pretty sure I'm winning!

We'll see if it works to completely get rid of them but for now they are so busy ridding them selves of their dead that they are not running all over my yard and biting my kiddos!

Hi! I, too, am an aspiring organic gardener who happens to be Mormon and lives in Mesa. I was so happy to find your blog and I hope you keep updating it often because I'm always looking for inspiration from other AZ gardeners. It's SO different here than in other parts of the country. (thanks for the ant advice-I put cornmeal on an ant pile yesterday and I'm waiting for the results)
