    Place the food bowl into a larger bowl that has about an inch of water in it. Ants do not cross the water. Another thing you can use is diatomaceous earth around the bowl in a larger bowl, same as using the water or sprinkled around the area if the bowl is outside. It doesn't hurt pets but kills bugs, including ants and fleas.

    I had the same problem with my cats' food, plus elsewhere around my clean home. I hired an exterminator who sprays once a month. Problem gone. If you don't want that expense, Home Depot has sprays you can apply yourself.

  • Find the source and point of entry. Get a free estimate from a pest control company and see what options they may have. I use vinegar and works well for me, very affordable and easy.

    Find the trail where they come in and put down a drop or two of Terro (I think thats how it is spelled) they eat that then the ants will be gone in a day or so.

    I put a circle of chalk around the bowl - Works great, ants don't like chalk, they have an exoskeleton and the chalk gets into their joints - They stay away from it.

    Buy the product Terro. The worker ants take it back to the ants den and they all die. Had terrible ant population 7 years ago; now, they are all gone. It comes in a little bottle.
