Why worry about Ants?
nts ‘farm’ and feed off of aphids, so if you see ants crawling up and down your plant stems, chances are you probably have aphid problems. You should deal with ants at the same time as aphids.
On their own, ant hills can do damage to root systems and lawn turf. However you should only treat ants IF there is a problem infestation. Ants are beneficial in the garden as soil-tillers and soil-aerators. Ants also “clean up” the soil and can also be found destroying the larvae of house & fruit flies!
Presence of ant hills at your garden means dry, sandy soil. Keep your soil healthy, moist and rich!
