Ant barrier

Barriers prevent ants from attacking the sown seeds and seedlings that are grown in freestanding seedbeds.

How to make an ant barrier?

  1. Cut a hole on a pan (plastic or aluminium) slightly smaller than the hole of the table?s leg.
  2. Push pan into the leg facing downward. Make sure to place baited pans on all the table's legs.
  3. Coat the undersides of the pan with sticky materials.
  4. Check the pans regularly to make sure that the baits are sticky enough to trap the ants.
