My hot chili and banana chili plants are infested by ants.

The fruit seems healthy but slow to ripen, but the leaves are crumpled. How can I get rid of the ants.
Thanks

Answer: Hi Judit,

Thank you for contacting Yates, ants are normally second infestation of sap sucking insects. They are on plants to seek honey dew secreted by scales, aphids and mealybugs. I would suggest checking for potential sap suckers on your crops and control them with Yates Nature’s Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
