Keeping ants off of my vegetables.
Ant are attacking my cucumbers. How do I safely get rid of them. I thought I read somewhere that baking soda sprinkled around and on the plant is a good remedy. Is that right? Thank you for your help. Jackie

Hi, Ants generally do not attack vegetables. They may be dining on some other insects that are on your plants. I would look closer to see what's really going on and I definitely would never spread baking soda on your garden.

I think dry grits would do as good as anything else. You may have to do it more than once but then grits aren't real expensive. Good luck.

I had okra plants and the ants would eat the tender tip off the pods. I sprayed with a vegetable spray but it doesn't last long. They ate more of it than I did,
