Default Ants !:O

I keep finding those brown little ants in rocky's water bottle. and they don't DROWN. what the?...
it's like they live in the water @,@
I can't find the source either... last week I always saw 2-3 on the table where the cage is and it was really hard to get them but I smashed a couple of them. then I figured it's the fruit pellets because I saw ants in that dish. so I stoped puting them in the cage and the ants gone for a couple of days. then I decided to try again with the pelets and I saw ants again in the dish so I throwed away the whole package
now I see again 1-2 ants in the bottle or just crawling at the cage...
(((( are they dangerous to budgies? :< how to I get rid of them? it's driving me crazyyy because it's not a bunch of ants. it's just 2-3 each day... if I really look for them.

also I completly cleaned the cage last week with water , and I cleaned the floor around I don't know where they come from. maybe it's the "survivors" from the pellet package.
well I think I made a mistake throwing the whole package :| they obviously keep coming from a secret place (

Hi Karina,

Are you sure these are ants? You did well in throwing away Rocky's fruity pellets, you should also check his food to see if there are ants/bugs in there or not.
If I were you, I would wash and disinfect the whole cage and accessories just to be on the safe side as well as the stand or table where the cage is in.
I would also deep clean the room and wash the floors, check the entire room for any signs of ants.

Another member has also had a similar issue with ants recently, so you may find the info on this link helpful: https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...help-ants.html

I hope you will soon be able to fully eradicate these ants.
