Lawn and Ants!

This past summer my lawn looked ridiculous. Ant hills all over my corner lot.
I tried granulated Ant killer. I just used a whole bag of insect killer (including ants) and I have sandy soil. My garden has beautiful soil and they started infiltrating it.
I’m having enough problems with deer and rabbits but Ants??
I’m afraid of them entering my house.

Sometimes boiling water can destroy large colonies, but it will not prevent them from coming back. This article will offer more solutions: [1]
