Ants in the compost bin which are running all over my Blackcurrants they don't seem to be harming the plant so are they eating something on the currant like some sort of aphid which could be harmful to the currant, in essence are they harmful/pest in the garden or not?
So they are a indication that other pests are about, and I can presume that they are beneficial in the garden if they are eating other insects and not harmful to other plants so no need to remove them from the compost heap/bin just let them get on with what they are doing ? Thanks for the swift reply. Thanks for all the replies great site.
