Ants...eek - 08/17/09 02:53 PM
Woke up this morning, went to the bird cage to see how the little ones were faring and found a ton of ants in their cage hanging around some lettuce that I left for them last night. I of course, cleaned everything off with cider vinegar, etc etc and vacuumed the floor thoroughly. I don't want any little ant-relatives coming by to check out the scene and was told I could use Terro liquid ant baits in the room with the keets. Does anyone know anything about this? Theoretically ants will feed on it and return to the nest and pass on to the colony. (I do hate to kill ants, btw, but I hate even more to see them crawling in my birds cage). Are there any alternatives that anyone has used successfully to stop ants from entering their bird areas? (besides cleaning, which of course I'm doing. And I will never leave lettuce or anything other than seed and pellet—which, btw, the ants were totally not interested in). thank you.
