ants in portulaca

Zone Hendersonville N.C. USA | Anonymous added on August 19, 2016 | Answered

I have Portulaca in a hanging basket and ants are all in them. How can I make them go away forever? They seem to be mostly in the middle of the flowers but some are in the dirt and on the vines.

Your plant could have ants due to an infestation. Neem Oil can be used to help with insects and it also works as an fungicide.
