Help with ants!

girasole5July 22, 2014

Hi! This year my balcony plants (especially my mint) have been literally invaded by ants, which seek the water from the automatic irrigation system...then seek more excitement, coming into my house, too! Any ideas on how to discourage their permanency (without having to kill them and pollute my plants)?
