Ants in my House Plants (Bay Area)
I live in a 1920's apartment in Oakland. I'm on the third floor. And I have a lot of house plants.
In the last few weeks, the ants have discovered my house plants. First it was one orchid, and today I was watering my Christmas Cactus, and was dismayed to see that I had disturbed HUNDREDS of ants.
What's a girl to do? I'm worried that if I let them stay, I'll create a terrible infestation. But I'm also worried that if I remove the plants, they'll start roaming and discover my kitchen.
I would prefer not to douse my apartment in poison.
I'm a transplanted Marylander, and don't know the rules for California ants.
