How to get rid of ants under rosemary bush in the ground?

Zone Lexington, NC | Anonymous added on August 23, 2019 | Answered

I have a large rosemary bush planted in the ground. The past few months I have noticed it is not as full and green as it has always been; some sections are turning brown and dying off. I noticed today there is an ant hill in the roots. Are the ants the cause of my rosemary plant’s declining?

Normally ants are after honeydew, which is secreted by pests such as aphids. Here is more information and how to control them, as well as diseases of rosemary.
