How to Keep Ant Control Up for Protection of Tomato Plantation


 
Environment,Health,Family & Parenting
Unfortunately for many gardeners, insects enjoy munching on tomatoes as much as people do. Ants rarely bother tomatoes, but if you see damage on your plants, you may suspect them as the culprits. Often, ants only come near tomato plants to milk honeydew from aphids clinging to the leaves. If you don't want ants crawling on your tomatoes, ward them off with sticky tape, scented plants or boiling water.

Treat your tomatoes for aphids or fruit worms if you see holes in the fruit. Ants are attracted to aphids, as well as to the holes fruit worms make in the tomatoes. Use Bacillus thuringensis, also called Bt, to get rid of these pests. Spray plants with strong blasts of water to knock off aphids.Many people believe that ants are not a threat to plants, however they will set up housekeeping with aphids that can be damaging. While other gardeners see ants chew fruits and beans. What do ants do to your tomatos?

Finally, many people believe that ants are a part of nature's plan, and they are beneficial insects because they help clean up the environment; they are predators in our forests and orchards, and are superb soil aerators. They become anoying only when they show up in the place where we do not like to see them. Perhaps it is better to use natural ant control method to drive them away, but not kill them.

Natural Way

Spray tomato plants with garlic water to ward off ants. To make the garlic spray, combine 2 tablespoons of mineral oil with 3 ounces of finely minced garlic. Let the garlic soak for one day. Remove the garlic. Add 1 pint of water and 1 ounce of liquid dish soap; mix well. To use, dilute the mixture in another pint of water. Coat the entire plant with the spray.

Sprinkle cinnamon, bone meal, talcum powder or cayenne pepper around the tomato plants. Ants find these textures and scents unpleasant.

Spread cucumber peels around tomato plants. Ants dislike the smell and taste of cucumber peels.

Sprinkle cornmeal around the area where you see ants. The ants take it to their nest, eat it and drink water and the cornmeal swell in their stomach and they die.

Or a more efficient and complex way: mix 4 portion of cornmeal and 3 portion bacon grease into a paste, then add 3 portion of baking powder with 3 portion of rapid rise yeast; Dab the mix on the surface of an object and set it near the place where ant gathers. Ants will swell to death when they eat the mix.

Grow peppermint, spearmint, catnip or pennyroyal around your tomato plants. Ants dislike the smell of these plants, so they will avoid the tomatoes.
