Answer: Unfortunately, based on your description I am unable to make any specific recommendations. You might wish to contact your county extension (652-5400) for a specific identification of the ants and their most up to date recommendations of how to control them, if indeed they are something that would disturb or damage or feed on plant roots. At the same time, you might wish to have them help you run some basic soil tests to see how it measures up in view of the plants you are trying to grow and then add any suggested soil amendments based on the results of the tests. Good luck with the ants.
