Q.Do ants affect the roots of my plants?
I grow succulents for my business and of all the answers about how to get rid of ants don’t make sense. Some people swear about boric acid, others about baking soda (or powder), rice, anything that can swell in their bodies after they eat them. But when you water your garden, all of those remedies don’t work because they only work when they’re dry. I’m finding ants on one type of succulent but not others. They colonize around the roots. I don’t want to use poison because it’ll hurt my worms. What can I do?
