    Default Ants

    Been feeding my weaker hive with a boardman feeder which was a problem because my stronger hive was robbing, also they would suck it dry in a few hours. Decided to get a top feeding, started using it yesterday morning check it before dark and notice a lot of small ants all over it. My question is, are the ant a threat to my hive? Have not seen any inside just the outside think there is a small leak in one corner of the feeder.
    Thanks in advance for your advise.

    As soon as my entrance feeder is empty, the ants just swarm in there to clean any thing up. I just had to keep some syrup in it all the time, so the bees would keep the ants out. I don't feed now so it's not a problem anymore. I wouldn't worry about it.
