Ants on my Plants

Ants are not bad.


If they are on your blooms,


they are just sipping some nectar.

If they are running up and down the stems and leaves,

Scale on Key lime tree.

you probably have aphids or scale,

Aphids on Butterfly weed.

which the ants milk like cows.

Ants on blooms are okay.


Ants all over your plant probably means there is a problem.

The ants are a result, not a cause.

Follow the Ants.
