    If a few ants get into the feeder I don't worry too much. If a steady stream of ants is coming and going they will probably start getting in the hive. I use baking soda or boric acid and rub it into the trail they are following and sprinkle it along the trail they are following. It messes with the formic acid trail they follow to get there.
