    Default Help! Have black ants crawling all over my vegetables

    We have a small garden and have black ants crawling all over the

    tomatoe plants and okra. Does anyone know what to put on the plants to

    get rid of the ants? The ants don`t seem to be eating the plants.



    TIA

    Yvonne You can try spraying them with vinegar it worked for ants in the

    house. It took a few days.

    Sprinkle borax around your veggies; or if you want to beenvironmentally correct, liberally sprinkle malt o meal around your veggies. The ants eat the malt o meal and it swells them up; and they die. The aunts aren't eating your plants, they're eating your blooms and new growth, the young tender tasty stuff. Hope this helps.

    Another way of keeping ants off counter tops, getting into home, on the

    floor is to spray or wipe areas with white vinegar.. Easy and the ants

    don't like goning where you have used vinegar.

    we use corn meal here or girts we check every day and put it out as

    often as needed, totaly safe for plants and critters, toxic to ants.
