Question of the Week 08/03/2019

Q: My trumpet vines are attracting a lot of ants. Is this because the plant has aphids also?

A: Trumpet vines attract many different types of insects, butterflies, hummingbirds, and unfortunately ants and aphids. The flower on the trumpet vine produces a sweet nectar that ants also enjoy.

If the ants are a problem consider spraying barrier ant spray around the plant to prevent the ants from getting to it.
