Ants as pest controllers

Ants as pest controllers
Ecologists have found that ants could help the farmers as safe, sustainable and cost-effective pest controllers. Studies on cashew and mango crops have revealed that, the plots patrolled by ants were protected from pests and were of better quality. Since the ant technology is much safe and cheaper than chemicals, they can be utilised widely in agriculture by obtaining more information and providing proper training to the farmers.
