Are ants bothering your hives? Especially those pesky argentine ants in the southern states. Ant moat will help with that problem. Just place one under each corner of the hive and fill with mineral oil to prevent ants from getting to your precious bees. We like to combine mineral oil with essential oils like cinnamon, wintergreen, lime or any other oils that are annoying to ants. Use a large syringe or a squeeze bottle filled with oil and fill the ant moats and the ants can't get across. Ant moats can be screwed into place if necessary using the 1/4 inch hole or merely placed under each corner for temporary use.
