one of my grow beds is infested with red ants. I mean you cant hardly harvest any veggies with out getting bitten. I've herd of a product called Orange something or other, that is non toxic to fish and plants. Is this product available or is there something else I can use. Thanks for your help, Gil

Raise up the stand pipe, and flood them out.

I like to follow the trail to the nest, and put and rid in little pots around it, it'll kill off the nest.

Plus one to that.. I have an adapter in each bed..

Just remove the BELL housing and fit the extra pipe and everything floods'...

I wonder if wood-vinegar works on ants.. it seems to work well on lots of bugs.. impressively well..

naturally, you can try AntRid or Honey and Borax (I think it is )

Flooding should kill any eggs off if they are nesting
