Ant infestation help please!
Hello, I have a vegetable garden in Sacramento. My main problem first came with caterpillars, which I tried but could not control in natural ways. My plants started looking sickly with leaves eaten, so I purchased Ortho insecticide to control them. This worked, HOWEVER now I have a huge ant infestation problem.
I mainly grow cucumbers, melons, and beans and the ants love the cucumber and melon plants. They seem to be laying tiny eggs all over the leaves and they take a liking to the area where the fruit flowers are growing. I think they like the pollen. How do I control this without using toxic sprays? I hate spraying since I have pets too, please help. Thanks!!!
