I have a question. Like I've said before this is my first time gardening. I have a raised bed, and decided to do a short row of corn. The plants seem to be growing fine, and even started having ears grow, but I doubt we'll be able to eat them, because they are infested with millions of tiny ants. These bugs are not on any other plant (all within the same bed) I am wondering what if anything is causing this, or what can i do about them. I would like to avoid any and all chemicals.
For some reason the ants are such a big problem this year! I went to Home Depot and they gave me a natural product that was ok to use by plants. It was a great help. Wish I still had the name - I will go back to Home Depot and see if I can find out!
That won't work for our pests Kids as we did lose 20 tomatoes because a grandson who was visiting the grandma in our neighborhood picked them off and stomped them all over the patio a couple weeks ago and the two weeks before that some other kids kept tearing them off .
