I’ve never heard of an antlion before, so I looked it up and yikes! I can see why you wouldn’t want them around, especially if your horse is allergic. Unfortunately, because they aren’t harmful to plants or people, I couldn’t seem to find any information on getting rid of them (most gardeners consider them to be beneficial!). If I were you, I’d reach out to your local Cooperative Extension Center ( They know your area best, and may have some helpful advice.

Good luck!
