Can ants pollinate?
I’m growing loofa right now which is such an interesting adventure! I’m really hoping to get some great loofa to use with my homemade soaps! We live in Southern California in the suburbs and try and plant as many pollinators as we can, but my loofa vines have massive amounts of ants trailing all over them and we read that sometimes any are attracted to aphids because they give off a sweet something... and to leave them to control the aphids and also they pollinate. I never heard this before. Thoughts anyone?
