Hi guys, I have ants that are climbing one of my plants in veg (outdoors, I'm in Southern Hemisphere) and cutting the leaves off. I topped my plant, but the ants have removed the new tops while they were still small. Does this mean that my plant is definitively dead because it has no points to continue growing upward? My other question is how to prevent them from spreading to the rest of my crop! I've been applying the usual slew of online remedies religiously, but none of them worked: spraying with white vinegar, applying cinnamon to and around the plant, a circle of turmeric powder and cornmeal, drenching the plant in a cinnamon/water infusion. Nothing has worked in the last day or so, and I'm now in the process of trying to get neem oil.
