Ants and Ticks and Fleas, Oh my!

Blast these Bugs!

This is a down to earth garden tip from Martin’s Pet and Garden Center.

There are a number of different insects in lawns and around home foundations which include ants, ticks, millipedes and pill bugs. Ants are excavating in lawns and in driveway and sidewalk cracks, creating mounds of soil.

Hi-Yield Bug Blaster II by Fertilome is an insect control granule that can be used on lawns, in landscape areas, around homes and industrial buildings as well as on recreational areas.

Bug Blaster II granules can applied with a lawn spreader or a hand held broadcast spreader. The granules should be watered after application for best results.

Bug Blaster II comes in quantities for 5,000 and 10,000 square foot applications. When treating for ticks and fleas, do not make spot applications, but treat an entire area. Bug Blaster II is effective for up to 30 days.
