    Proboscidea soil question

    Hey, can Proboscidea stand coffee-infested soil?
    I was just preparing the soil when I found a large ant mound. I poured coffee grains over it, and the rest of the land too.

    Well,
    I don't know if coffee bothers them or not!


    This is the picture that came up when I googled Proboscidea.
    I never saw an elephant drinking coffee, but then
    I didn't know ants didn't like coffee either!

    Now I am even more confused however....
    You said you have "coffee-infested soil?"
    Or is it Ant infested?
    Or Proboscidea (Elephant) infested...?
    So which is it?

    Sorry, I was up late last night, and am having a difficult time recovering today.
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
