hi all,
first time poster.
i've noticed ants on my zuke blossums.
i have also noticed the bees tend to avoid the blossums with the ants.
some of my zukes seem great, some seem poor.
could this be from poor pollination?
do i need to get rid of the ants?

thanks in advance,
hookset

Sounds like you need to use a weekly application of a compost tea. Maybe one with a little extra garlic and hot peppers or maybe citrus oil (liquified orange/lemon peelings) in it for extra pest control.
