ants eating the little worms in my vegetable garden
Hi, I read alot of the posts about red ants in vegetable gardens and saw alot of helpful ideas, but nothing mentioned ants eating the beneficial worms in the soil. I went out to check my bush and pole beans the other day and noticed a slew of the little worms on the ground with ants all over them, and the worms were wiggling around helplessly. I watched the ants emerge from the soil with the worms, and I have used the DE several times. I have also noticed that my beans that started healthy and vibrant are now dying the leaves are being eaten by something and nothing but bare stems left.
I am wondering if maybe the seeds are the culprit? We used them last year and they were fine.
Thank you for any suggestions, I am thinking of starting them over again, but want to get rid of the ants first, but save the worms
