    Maybe.

    The ants might be feeding off nectar from your Sarrs but there is also a chance that they are moving in and bringing aphids along. For safety sake I would take the plant in question and fully submerge its pot in water for a few days. That'll kill any ants living in the soil and stop an colinization attempts[/QUOTE]
    Pyro -

    Ants bring aphids? Can you elaborate on that a little? I never knew there was any relationship between those two pests.

    Thanks.

    Exclamation

    Aphids are to ants as Cows are to humans. Ants milk aphids for the sweet dew that they produce, they love the stuff.

    (just putting my 1/2 cent in)
