Hi,

 

I have been growing eggplants from seeds and have about 10 plants. I noticed in a few plants holes being bored by red ants. The plants, look very weak and the flowers dry and drop off.

Please help me in overcoming this problem.

 

Thanks

This forum is starting to become dormant. No real activity. Can some experts take the lead and help clarify our doubts please.

Best to apply turmeric powder near the stem and dust the bored area with turmeric powder. Add some compost/vermicompost and see if they get over it. Meanwhile apply neem oil regularly will also help getting into such problems.
