Abstract

Ants—particularly Argentine ants—often interfere with the normal activities of beneficial insects attacking certain scale and mealybug pests. Therefore the chemical control of ants in citrus groves has sometimes been of value in encouraging the spread and multiplication of these beneficial insects.
