Ants and Pomegranates
(South Africa )
Hi I live in South Africa and the ants love the pomegranate tree ! Any suggestion how to keep the ants away naturally from the fruit and tree .
Hi, Francine -
I don't think ants hurt the tree. If you don't like the ants being there you can wear gloves while picking the fruit.
Thyme attracts ants, so planting thyme nearby may send the ants over to the thyme and away from your pomegranate.
Hope you found that useful.
Does anyone else have other ideas? In the US I use dry grits as a non-toxic ant killer, but I don't know if that is sold in SA.
