    They might, when the corn is short enough to reach. I'm not sure how well they'd see them under the leaves. But chickens will also probably dig holes in the garden, guineas won't generally do that quite as much but there could still be damage.

    I just squish aphids, & then spray to discourage their ant friends. Are corn leaf aphids associated with ants like other aphids?
