Tree Ants and Hammocks

Tree Ants and Hammocks

So I thought I'd share a little trick I devised today to keep the tree ants (not sure what species) from using my hammock as a highway between trees. I took some duct tape and wrapped it sticky side out so they would get stuck on it. Instead they won't even go on the tape at all, but turn around and go the way they came. It seems to be working so far. Granted, I've only been doing it for 20 minutes, but maybe it will last until the smell wears off, or the stickiness, or something! I'm encouraged anyway. They have never bitten us but it sure is frustrating to be relaxing on the hammock and see a little trail of ants wandering along...
