: I have a lot of big ants in my garden. There a lot on my peonies too. They are on the buds and flowers. I don't know what to do! I used ant traps but they seems ineffective.

Hi Wena ~

Having ants on your peonies is a good thing! I don't know the scientific explanation for it, but the ants are what cause a peony to open and flower. But if you want them gone, a light spray of water from the hose is the best way to make them Bug Off.

Good luck,
