I'm new here and this is my first post. I am very new to gardening and I have an ant problem. I have a cedar tree seeding in a pot outside. I noticed yesterday that my pot has been overrun with ants. They are very aggressive and attack and bite if I even tap the pot. They are excavating the dirt out of the container. There is a big mound of dirt around the plant.
I read on a few sites to try borax ant killer. I put some of the liquid down, and the ants immediately buried the bait. What does that mean? Are they going to eat it later? My little tree comes inside during cold weather, and I can't bring it in with all the ants. What should I do?!
I and my tree thanks you!
