Ants – In Your Potted Plants

Q: I have hordes of tiny ants living in my outdoor potted plants. Are they a problem for the plants in those pots?

A: Not usually, but I suppose an argument could be made that some ant species bring aphids to feed on plants near their nest. If the ants bother you, dilute any garden insecticide and drench the soil to kill the little critters.
