    I put dish soap all over the hook it hangs from and coat the top part of the feeder as well. I have used this method for many years with lots of luck. Ants hate dish soap.

    Hang the feed with a thin fishing line. It makes it very difficult for the ants to crawl up to the feeder.

    There is a product called Nectar Fortress Natural Ant Repellent. You only need a tiny bit on your string or hook. The ants will turn around and march away.

    Thick coat of Vaseline on the pole leading to the feeder.
