Message: I have the answer for Victoria who has problems with ants. You need to discourage them, as they are farming the scale insects for honeydew. On my balcony, where I have many bay trees, I tried ant poison, and co-existing (this was disastrous - I had ants everywhere).
In the end, I worked out that if I stamped on every ant I saw, they would stop coming to my balcony. I think that if more than a certain percentage of ants fail to return to the nest, more will not be sent out. In a confined area, this works like a charm.

Message: I have 2 bay trees that have been eaten by something and have brown leaves and holes all over the leaves. One of them is now growing lots of new leaves but I have noticed that these are also being eaten. I cannot spot any caterpillars or anything that could be doing this? How can I stop this? What can I use? Bewildered!

Message: I have a potted bay leafed tree about four feet high. In winter I bring inside. This year I lost track on watering it and a few weeks ago I brought it out side. Now about all the leaves are brown but the trunks are still green I water and keep in a shaded area. I think the sun was to hot when o brought it out and lack of water may have contributed to this condition. Will it regrow new leaves thanks
