There are lots of things that begin with the letter "A," but the two things I am referring to are aphids and ants. All it takes is a couple of warm days and both of those pests will be having free lunch on your plants. Read on to learn about aphids mainly and the role ants also play in the life of aphids and how to control both of them.

Ella, thank you for another great article! Thumbs up

Pests and yet amazing little creatures, I'm talking about the aphids but I guess that goes for the ants too!

Renee and Christine your both welcome. Glad you enjoyed it. Smiling

Christine... Your right. Such tiny creatures that can be so destructive to our plants but yet they do live an amazing type of survival lifestyle. It really is something to watch them up close when they are bringing the aphids up out of the winter nests. If you've ever been bitten by an ant, you know just how painful the bites can be. Yet, when it comes to the aphids, the ants carry them around til they find the right plant like they was a newborn babe.
