First giant anta now tiny evil ants!!!
I would suggest a Borax and sugar in a jar with wholes in the lid. The jar would keep both chickens and cats out.
Borax is safe, is a boron mineral and salt that’s mined directly from the ground.
It is NOT boric acid which is toxic. Boric acid is produced when borax is reacted with another acid (like sulfuric or hydrochloric acid). The result is an acid structure (pH of 5.0), rather than alkaline, as borax is (9.3 pH).
