How are your ants?

I've notice a few places in my garden where ants seem to be setting up aphid farms.

You can also dust them with diatomaceous earth, but don't do it if the lady bugs are already there. Keep them shaded and healthy and they can fight off the bugs better.

Thank you, I do have ladybugs in other parts of the yard, I think I'll move them over. If that doesn't work I will spray them. Jackie

If spraying them with water twice a day for a week doesn't get ride of them, trying spraying them with insecticial soap. You can also try Neem oil.

Best ways to keep aphids off my artichokes. I have sprayed them with water but they keep coming back and they are inside. Does anyone have a safe way to get rid of them? emoticon
