How to Get Rid of Ant Mounds

Rid Of Small Dirt Mounds In A Lawn

Rake small dirt mounds on a dry day when the lawn feels dry to the touch, using either a regular garden rake or a thatching rake, set so the tines don't scrape the turf crowns. Place refillable ant bait traps containing a ready-to-use 0.5 to 1.0 percent borate solution on near anthills on ant trails. Check the ant bait every three or four days and refill as needed. Rake anthill mounds away when ants disappear, after about a week.
