The ants stripped one before. I thik they are little black army ants. I topped watered it and washed it really good with the sprayer. I then took raid ant and roach spray (because thats what I had) and sprayed the plant and the ant trail. I did this today. I checked on it and the ants aren't there and the plant looks good. Our weather has been really hot and they don't like triple digit weather
I moved one that I had in a large pot to a cooler always shady place and hopefully when it buds the blooms will flower now instead of just falling off. Back to the ants. The plant may have had aphids too. Hence the ant infestation? I guess, get rid of the aphids I get rid of the ants.
