9. Plant pennyroyal around the base of the tree. Ants hate the shit.


It's also an EXCELLENT mosquito/black fly repellent - just snap off a two inch branch and rub it on your arms and face. It's not as gross as the shit in commercial chemical stuff and doesn't make your nose burn like citronella can. I've gotten rid of entire ant nests just by crushing a few branches and distributing them around the mound. It really freaks the fuckers out! Fun to watch. It doesn't kill them, but inspires them to go elsewhere. They can't stand it.
