Barriers prevent ants from attacking the sown seeds and seedlings that are grown in freestanding seedbeds.
How to make an ant barrier?
- Cut a hole on a pan (plastic or aluminium) slightly smaller than the hole of the table’s leg.
- Push pan into the leg facing downward. Make sure to place baited pans on all the table's legs.
- Coat the undersides of the pan with sticky materials.
- Check the pans regularly to make sure that the baits are sticky enough to trap the ants.
