For ants, I use KM AntPro bait stations with Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait, which is borax in a liquid solution. The bait stations keep the borax away from other critters. http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=km+ant+pro+bait+station&tag=googhydr-20&index=aps&hvadid=90096572088&hvpos=1t2&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6148475347010349048&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_2tj02zbci7_b

Mosquito Dunks and their cousins in other forms use BTI to prevent mosquito larvae from growing up to be mosquitoes. They are totally nontoxic to other life. You just put it in any standing water that you cannot eliminate from your yard - rain barrels, natural puddles, pot reservoirs, watering troughs, whatever. You can get it in granules that you can sprinkle, or little packets, too. Any brackish water can breed mosquitoes, and each dunk treats 100 sq. ft. for 30 days. http://www.amazon.com/Summit-111-5-20-Pack-Mosquito-Dunk/dp/B0002568YA/ref=pd_sim_86_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=51F-PdCsSiL&dpSrc=sims&preST=AC_UL160_SR160%2C160&refRID=1W7ED1BSDZBRDTAZ9WVH

I love this kind of thing - science at work for all of us!

Just an update. Wish I had a picture of my slug free garden wrapped with an attractive slug electric fence. It works! Finally, free to mulch, and put on winter protection. My heartfelt thanks to the gardeners of the Baltics and UK. Sea coast gardens need all the help they can get!
