Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: Stop ants in their track with petroleum jelly. I have tried many things to keep ants out of my hummingbird feeders. The only thing that has been full proof up to this point has been when I smear petroleum jelly on the wire that the feeder is hanging on. They never try to cross that gooey stuff.
