Yes, ants are just one of the problems with the boardman style feeders. You're idea of an inner pail or jar feeder is great, much better than the boardman you are removing. Just cover it with an empty hive body and lid so the sun does not shine on the feeder. Sun shining on it will cause increased pressure inside which will cause the syrup to squirt out too quickly.
