red ants

Martin O\’Sullivan asked 11 years ago
Are red ants capable of eating vegetables growing. Just that i have a garden patch fenced off from rabbits. but there is something nibbling the top of my vegetables. Mainly spring onions and parsley. did notice red ants close by!

Ants do not eat plants, except sweet ripe fruit.

If the tops are being eaten, either the rabbits are still getting in somewhere or deer are jumping the fence, but you should be able to find tracks as a clue,
