i noticed that ants have discovered my (still new) hives. ...all the way up on my roof, so they are pretty good a climbing houses. they are the tiny sugar ants. there aren't that many of them, they are not aggressive ants like you have in the south, and they are pretty far away from where i think their nest is. there are some things i might try (vaseline). but beeing lazy, what i really want to know is: if i don't do anything, what's the worst that could happen? will they rob honey? transmit disease? otherwise annoy the bees?
