Questions and Answers / Re: Ants in Earthbox

I dumped the box in a low area of the yard and let them eat ant poison.  It's a done deal, ants gone.  Need to redo earthbox.

Aline, use a spinosad a.i. drench for fire ants, 4 TBS/gallon. You have to pull the cover back and thoroughly drench the box

Depends on the type of ant. Regular ants (meaning other than mutant fire ants) I plug the drain hole and fill the box with water and leave it for a day. The ants will leave on their own to find a new home. If they are fire ants the box belongs to them now. Filling with water will do nothing but make them meaner. Best just to buy a new box and let them keep theirs.  :o

Questions and Answers / Overwintering garlic in Zone 7a

What could possibly go wrong?

What if I put 8 cloves of Elephant Garlic in an EB Root&Veg right now?

Is this totally stupid? Will it all freeze solid or will ice crack the EB?

I'd take a squirt bottle and try to flush them off.

Just water?  Iíve been squishing by hand and knocking them off, but they just keep coming back.

They should be outside already in a shady spot.

Why a shady spot?  Do you mean bring them in at night so they donít freeze at night?
