Will red ant colony damage my potato crop?

Posted: 12/05/2013 at 13:58

Thanks everybody for your help and advice! I'm sure I'll need more in the future as we get to know the allotment, but for now I'll just keep earthing the potatoes and hope the ants move on!

Will red ant colony damage my potato crop?

I was over at the allotment today, and whilst covering the first leaves of the potato crop (Maris Bard) I came across a large red ant colony.

It's our first year on the allotment and we're trying to learn fast! Will these ants damage the crop? If so,what can we do?!

Thanks in advance of any advice!

Just found a large red ant colony when tending to the potato tubers. Will they damage the crop?
