How to protect honey jar from ants


Is there any technique to prevent ants from getting into a honey jar? The outside of the jar is covered with dead ants every day.

Currently, I am wiping the surface of jar with a wet cloth before opening the lid, but I still see dead ants inside the lid, too. (They are not in the honey itself, though.)

Best Answer

Here are a few options:

  • Make a salt barrier around the jar.
  • Keep jar in a bowl full of water.
  • Use air-tight container (doesn't need to be a jar).

Any of the above should keep ants away from your honey.
