Natural Ant Repellent?
Can I get some advice? First time gardener here, with my first crop ever. I planted squash and cowpeas in a raised trough, and ants are going crazy on them. They're eating the peas and stealing the pollen from my squash flowers. I'm looking for a safe and natural repellent, no chemicals. I looked online and tried black pepper and cinnamon, but it hasn't seemed to help much. Though it has been an unusually wet week so perhaps it just washed away too quickly. Can anybody help me save my peas?!
