Ants in large indoor potted plants

Zone Cranford, NJ 07016 | dianemetz added on December 31, 2015 | Answered

I have an ant problem in my indoor potted plants. I read to soak them for 20 minutes in two tablespoons of insecticidal soap per quart of water. But my pots are too large and too heavy to do that. Is there another solution? Thank you! diane

In this case I would recommend purchasing a chemical ant spray or solution from you local garden center or greenhouse.
Apply according to the package directions. This is the quickest and easiest way to rid the plant of ants since the container is to large to move.
