|Now it's war

I kill plants. I am whatever the opposite a green thumb is (brown toe?). But one thing I've had minor success keeping alive is hibiscus.
And now the crazy ants are killing them. Because crazy ants are tenders. They tend aphids and mealyworms and other annoying hibiscus-eating pests, which have all of a sudden covered my hibiscus.
Yesterday I sprayed them all down with insecticidal soap. Which with my luck will probably kill them. But if it does, at least it was me and not the ants, right?
