I am having difficulty sharing my garden with nature. I have a ton of ants running around outdoors, and lots of wasps and hornets flying about near my front carport garden. I found these ground nests, and I'm really not sure which pest is responsible. I did see something fly into one of the holes twice, and I'm thinking it's more of a hornet/wasp thing. But then, since I think hornets/wasps feed on ants, could they be ant nests?
Whoa is me! I have had an exterminator around twice this year for both. I am thinking for these ground nests I'll get DH to spray at night, taking proper precaution in the event the nest belongs to the stinging insects.
I hate using pesticides, but the thought of somebody getting stung is disturbing. Also, as I have had carpenter ants show up in the house now and then, I get sspraying done as needed OUTDOORS, not indoors........and I don't want a huge problem that results in the need to spray indoors as I am uncomfortable about that.
