I generally consider ant ok in the garden, but this year I have ants eating my radishes. Not the leaves, the radishes themselves. Some are covered with them. They also carried off about half of my lettuce seeds, which was pretty funny actually. Any suggestions for repelling them? I garden organically as, I assume, most other readers do. Thanks in advance for the help!
I don’t know if this will work outside, but we use ground cinnamon to repel the small ants inside. It works REALLY well, much better than anything else I have used (including chemical). I have seen an ant stop mid-march and turn around when it reached the line of cinnamon. No more ants in the kitchen!
Great Idea! I will try it an let you know if it works. Thank you!
