I have tiny black insects and bull ants all over my roses and citrus trees. They are destroying the leaves etc

Answer: Hi Veronica,
The small black insects are probably aphids and the ants are attracted to the sugary substance excreted after the aphids feed. Yates Nature’s Way Insect and Mite Killer will control the aphids and once the aphids have gone the ants will not longer forage for the sugary substance.

Spray the aphids and then respray 5-7 days later. Avoid spraying in hot weather ie temperatures over 30 C.
