comment

Haven't had a problem with ants on the dahlias but last year had a problem with aphids. None this year yet. Some ants farm aphids so they can milk them for their honeydew. This might be why the ants are there. (I know this sounds odd but you can Google it if you think I'm crazy)😂😁

2w
comment
kez001uk

@gjones oh that’s interesting! So does that mean they aren’t destructive? Or will they destroy the plant eventually?

2w
comment
gjones

If the ants are farming the aphids, they'll keep the aphids alive (as a food source). The ants won't hurt the dahlias but the aphids will. If you get rid of the aphids, you'll also get rid of the ants. We just make a home made solution from dawn dish soap, a bit of vinegar and warm water and spray it wherever you see the aphids.
