Step 9: Water Dish Ant Barrier
Honey jar covered with ants?
Ants can't swim.
Put the honey jar in a dish with water in it. Problem solved.
To keep ants or other insects from climbing tables, beds, or other furniture, put the legs in a dish, can, or or bucket with water in it. If the water doesn't stop your bugs use bleach or other stuff bugs don't like. You'll also want to pull your bed/table away from the wall and keep the bedspread/tablecloth from touching walls and floor.
