This is the second time since My chicks moved in, that I found an ant COLONY snagging feed from around thier two feeders. Previously, while living in the high Sierra's, I put out "comet" to get rid of the invaders. It's amazing how much feed a colony can carry away. Well, today, I applied the "comet" again. I no longer reside in the high Sierra's- Carefully spreading it "ordinary comet cleanser"AROUND THE RUN, & allowing nothing near the feeders, the ants immediately backed off !!!! I may get flak for this from someone out there, but for most ant colonies, this economical remedy works GOT ANTS?? A possible solution!!!!!
