They, the ants, begin snacking away shortly after they begin to turn red and well before they are ripe enough to pick. How do we keep them off/away?

Thanks
lady

Ants don't usually make the initial holes, but will feast after something else like a bird, makes the holes. Look at the vegetable and Herb forum for some ideas on how to keep birds away.
