Ant Help

NicholasHJuly 7, 2014

At first there was a few ants just feeding on the stalks that support the leaves. I was told if the problem gets worse, I should do something about it. Well they are actually running up and down the base of my plumeria and they are making a home in an opening at the top of the base. Help? (It is black because I sprayed it down w/ water)

Hi there! If possible, I would put it in a spot where you can put the ant granules around the outside of the pot. No need to put anything IN the plumeria pot - if you put the granules on the outside they will take the bait, take it to the queen & you will get rid of them. Good luck!

Edit to add: also fill the space they're going into if possible. You can use silicon caulk,Dap, etc.
