Hi GG and Gardening experts….

Yesterday i found some BLACK ants in the leaves of Cabbage and Watermelon plants.

* These plants has kept in a distance of 7 ft.

*In cabbage i found there are so many ants and i removed all the leaves.

* In watermelon i found these green dots, and blak ants, when i digg a little i found some ants and ant eggs inside the soil also.

* Today morning i sprayed ANTAC to both of the plant leaves.

Ants can be controlled by boric powder around the pot.( NOT in the pot).
