So, We don't really want ants in our gardens, right?

Let me get this right -- Ants are neither a beneficial nor a "undesireable." But, they DO usher in aphids and whiteflies(undesirables).

So, NO ants, right?

If I am correct, can somebody please list some ORGANIC forms of ant control besides DE. I plan on using DE anyhow since I just got a 50lb bag of the stuff. But, I'd like to nip it in the bud possibly combine techniques.

Also, is there an efficient way of spreading DE? I've used a kitchen strainer to lightly dust areas, but it's kind of a pain in the a**. I was hoping to find a better way without having to invest in a power duster.

Next, Let's say I finally break down and invest in a power duster. Any recommendations?
