Okay, this has never happened to me before until a few days ago. I am a dog owner myself, and after almost 4 long years of feeding my dog, ants suddenly showed up and invaded her food bowl.
Pesticides is a no-no! After some research, I found two different and 100% natural techniques to keep ants from raiding your pet’s food.
First, you can try to sprinkle ground cinnamon around your pet’s dish. The cinnamon should repel the ants. Another way is to dab a small amount of petroleum jelly around the base of the food bowl. Ants will not cross the petroleum jelly. Hopefully these simple tips will do the trick!
I have yet to try them myself. I’m not quite sure what made this happen just now, because she’s had the same dog food ever since. If any case ants do invade your pet’s food, these are two simple tips that one should try without have to worry about your pet ingesting any chemicals from pesticides!
