I am losing my mind! I had a new breed of ant appear in my garden last fall and they are driving me crazy. They're some sort of leaf cutter ant.
Here they are on a potato. Since they arrived on the scene, I have not been able to grow any lettuce or carrots- they eat off the seedlings as soon as they emerge. They have eaten 4 potatoes, numerous collards, 2 Japanese eggpplants, half my cucumber seedlings, and the equivalent of 2 rows of bean seedlings.
Did I mention that they bite too?! Does anyone have any ideas to control them?
