Answer: The ants are not the problem but I suspect overwatering is. While it's important to provide water to the roots of your plants, poorly draining soils or watering too frequently will suffocate the roots of your plants. Too much water drives out oxygen. The best way to water your plants is to water slowly so the moisture percolates down deeply. Then allow the top of the soil to dry out before watering again. Wait 3-4 days after watering and dig down into the soil. If it is still moist and inch below the surface you won't need to water for a few more days. If it is dry, it's time to water. Hope this information helps!
