Ants in Your Plants?

Standard

20170622A.pngDon’t panic at the sight of little brown ants climbing onto your plants. These insects are completely harmless and do nothing to disturb plant growth.

However… the presence of ants often indicates another problem. That’s because ants feed on the honeydew emitted by aphids and mealybugs, insects that truly are a danger to your plants. Follow the ants’ movements and they will often lead you to a hidden invasion of truly nasty bugs.

A thorough treatment with insecticidal soap, repeated weekly for 3 weeks, will overcome the real problem! And you can thank the ants for showing you where the problem was!
