Ants on Sunflowers

Anonymous added on August 27, 2011 | Answered

I planted sunflowers in my grandchildren's garden. My daughter said that there are ants all over the stalks of the sunflowers. Is there something on the stalks that attract the ants? Also, is there something that can be used as a deterrent without killing the ants?
