no spray for us anywhere, for one thing we'd worry about mookie. we put bait traps out for the ants, that's about it, as they get to be a nuisance in the house in the spring if we're not vigilant.

your garden sounds yummy! my hubby puts in the veggies each year and we have a nice stand of strawberry plants, tons of raspberry and blackberry bushes, hardy kiwi (they're awesome for anyone living up north!), a few cherry trees around, and a peach tree that the honeybees always seem to get to before the peaches are ripe enough for us, oh well, LOL! the bees gotta eat too!
