Ants, ants, ants

Hello, everyone.

I remembered again today why I hate ants so much. Well, one of the reasons: Cutter Ants.

I had 2 of these Gold Dust Crotons in the yard. This one is still pretty.

Cutter ants found this one and took every single leaf off of it. It's only now beginning to get new ones.
The Cutter Ants also bite very painfully--but my primary objection is the way they kill plants. Pine trees, roses, pecan trees, grape vines, palm trees, jacaranda trees, figs, redbud trees, perennials, annuals--they even take the leaves from okra!
