touching fruit attracts ants????

15 years ago

Hello everyone,

I do not frequent this forum often but I hope you all can help me anyway. I have a neighbor that insists that touching fruit on a plant will attract ants to it. She insists that the scent we leave behind attracts ants which then in turn destroy the fruit.

Has anyone ever heard this before and can anyone show me a reputable link to a site that will substantiate this claim? I have looked and can find nothing on the subject.

Thanks for your time.
