Ants can damage lawns and gardens and create unsightly mounds of soil. Nema Globe Ant Attack contains microscopic beneficial nematodes in a 3" diameter biodegradable ball that attack young ants and drive the adults away. The package contains enough nematodes to treat 1,000 square feet or 16 ant hills. There's no need to reapply after rain or irrigation — moisture drives the nematodes deeper into the soil and helps them work. Effective on common red and black ants. Apply with a watering can or sprayer, sold separately. Apply when ant activity is visible and soil temperatures are above 50 degrees F and keep soil moist for at least two weeks after application.

Most disappointed I have ever been in a garden purchase
from Brookfield, CT
Comments about : Nema Globe Ant Attack:
I am an experienced gardener and have successfully used lawn nematodes for Jap beetles but these nematodes were a big waste of time and money. I bought 6 globes to treat several different ant-infested areas; had ideal conditions of overcast, damp weather. I used a lawn spray device and even with that amount of pressure, the contents of the globe didn't completely dissolve. I had to continually open the sprayer to break up the clumps. Now after 4 weeks, none of treated areas have shown any improvement. The nematodes were either in poor condition when sent or were treated poorly enroute. I believe they were DOA which of course is not apparent to the naked eye so I couldn't determine that condition or test for it. Baking soda w/honey solutions and/or diatomaceous earth are much less desirable for areas in question since it will draw and/or harm wildlife.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Easy to use but if it's a bit dry it take a lot of watering to maintain the effectiveness

Product was easy to use. Work great I do not have one fire ant bed in my yard this year. Would and will use again. Tied everything for years, all kinds of home remedies and nothing worked they still came back and popped up in other places.
Grass looks better and see no ants
By Boulder Mom
from Boulder, CO
The instructions were vague so I hope I put it on correctly. The nemotodes come in a package with a small thin foam like padding. I wasn't sure if you soak the pads in the water or scrap them off in the water. I scraped them and then sprayed the solution on lawn and flower beds. I haven't seen any ants. Make sure you water immediately and keep them in refrigerator. I was lucky that it rained 3 days in a row when I put it on. I will defintely use again. My mother recommended the product and she was successful controlling the ants in her small farm lot in WY. I used in on the lawn and flower areas.
Not too sure about product
By Queen of the Garden

Used this product to help get rid of the ants in my yard that were invading my house. Seems to have worked because I noticed that there are less ants around.

Timing is everything!

I think I may have ordered too late. The weather conditions have been too warm so the package is still in my refrigerator. Maybe in September.
Not worth the time and money
from Hebron, Ct
We used this on the ants outside. We applied it over 3 weeks ago, the day it arrived. It did not work. The ants are as active now as they were 3 weeks ago.
poorly packaging leads to bad results
By mom in the garden
The shipping and tracking information was not accurate. The product was delivered before the expected date, it sat on the front porch, when it did get in, the sticker with refrigeration instructions was little and on the bottom of the box, not on top with the labels so it was missed.From the results in the yard I suspect the ball was done-for before I ever got home. Truly disappointing

I will buy this product again.
from Mooresville, IN
I used this and it rained 3 days in a row. I was glad because I wasn't looking forward to watering it everyday. Now that I have used it, I would be glad to water it. Have not seen an ant in 2 weeks. Great product!!
Last year we bought 11 tons of soil to add to our backyard. What we didn't realize was we also brought home a zillion ants. They were setting us nests everywhere. Because I keep tortoises in my backyard I will not use pesticides. These nematodes were the answer. I followed the directions and within 48 hours the ants in the backyard were gone. No more ants in the food or attacking the hatchlings. I would recommend it highly.I plan to purchase more and do the front yard as well since there are wild rabbits running through the front yard at night and I do not war to use pesticides there either.
