    The little green bumps are probably eggs.Try using seven as directed. You can get this at all nurseries

    maybe ants pooping on it or laying eggs… try dumping hot boiled water around the hasta.
    Dump it where the ants are coming from.

    Nooo… hot water can kill the hosta too!!! I would spray the heck out of it with insecticidal soap. Look closely; a lot of times ants are tending aphids, which can be harder to spot. Once the aphids are gone the ants are too.

    try using a mild dish soap and water, put it in a spray bottle just enough soap when you shake the bottle it gets suds in it. spray down any plants that are being botherd by any bugs. this is also a safe way to clean dust off plants and is cheaper then sevin
