Ants and Aphids Again

The ants must have been prepping a place for the aphids this morning, when I saw them marching up and down the hackberry tree. Now they are carrying the aphids up the tree. I've never noticed them do this when we've had light rains, so we must be in for a doosey of a storm.

our ants carry aphids up into plants all the time. All summer long, in fact. The trees that are vulnerable get constant rings of tanglefoot painted on them to keep the ants away.
