ants in staghorn fern

Zone Houston, TX | Laura Gann added on December 28, 2015 | Answered

What can I use to get rid of ants in fern roots? With all the rain in Houston, ants are crawling everywhere and got into fern. I have tried just washing them out. What about diluted dish soap?

This is a case where I might recommend using a commercial ant spray to quickly kill off the ants.
Your local garden center or greenhouse should stock this treatment.
