    Default Ants

    What advise can you give for controlling large ants getting in hives. Location is Guatemala. They are larger than black carpenter ants I've experienced in the states.

    The only thing that has worked for me has been wood ash on the inter cover. With carpenter ants. The reason why is that they donít like the high acid that the ash makes. Just something to think on.

    Not sure on the big ants but I've coated the hive stand legs in Vaseline and the ants won't cross it.
