This is my first year gardening here, and I'm realizing that the soil - besides being incredibly sandy - is FILLED with ants. Ants everywhere. Billions of them. I'm used to a really clay soil, so the sandiness is really new - and there are simply ants everywhere where I'm trying to plant.
How big a problem are the ants? Do I need to get rid of/reduce them before planting? I don't have the cash for beneficial nemotodes and I don't want to use any poisons. I wanted to get these seeds in the ground tomorrow, but not if I have to control the ant population first.
