Q.

Would Boric Acid be harmful for Fig Trees?

I have millions of ants, and use boric acid with sugar/peanut butter and powder sugar mixes to kill them... my fig trees are infested with ants and I would like to treat the fig with the boric acid, but don't know how it will harm the trees.

    The ants are there likely due to another infestation; they are attracted to the honeydew residue of the pests.
