The Q&A Archives: large bleck ants on my Gardenias

Question: How do I get rid of the large ants chewing the leaves and buds off my gardenia? I have two Gardenias, but only one of them is covered by the ants, they chew the new buds off before it gets a chance to bloom. Also the leaves are turning yellow and falling off. I planted it one year ago and it was doing great until about 2 or 3 months ago when the ants took over.
