Hello all,

We have been battling a colony of ants that has moved into the English garden top of our hive. We have sprinkled loads of cinnamon and also used some Vaseline but the ants are still in there.. We are thinking of using silicone caulking to seal up all the small cracks in the top. Has anyone done this? Was it helpful in keeping the ants out??

I'm open to other ideas also!

Here is a picture of the top (and the ants moving the eggs around)
