WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR
Ants found on trees and shrubs are usually an indication that another insect infestation is present in the foliage. They tend to be more active during warmer months and can be found climbing up and down your plants in a single file line.
SIGN OF INFESTATION
When ants are infesting your yard, you can find mounds of dirt around the well of your plant. You can also find honeydew present on your plant’s stems.
How to Treat
- Monitoring – Look for ants climbing up and down the trunk or branches of your plants. They are especially active in the warmer months of the year and should be treated early on.
- Fertilizer – Give your plants the tools they need to bounce back from the infestation—apply Super Charged Moon Juice and Moon Dust according to label instructions.
- Treatment – When ants are found on trees, it is generally because they are feeding on honeydew left behind by other pests such as aphids or mealybugs. To effectively treat the ant infestation, you will need to target secondary pests, too. This is best accomplished with both a topical contact spray and a granular ant bait. Always follow all instructions on the chemical labels.
