Why is my yellow trumpet climber covered in ants?
Hampshire, United Kingdom
I am a complete novice on gardening etc but I have a yellow trumpet that is growing very well. However, every time I water it, I notice the plant, especially the trumpets are covered in ants. I can't see any other insect at all. So do you know whether they are good or bad for the plant?Could they be eating some other thing that the naked eye can't see or are they after something from the plant? I haven't got a clue to this.I don't want to get rid of them if they are doing good, however, if they are bad for it how do I get rid of them? I would love any help on this please. Regards, Jean.
