I really need your help guys! My mealworms were attacked by ants. How do you prevent this?? And if it does happen again, how to take the ants out?

baby poweder/borax mix around the tank. You can also bait them with sugar water mixed with borax. Trust me...I have the worst look with ants do a search for my post about them, where I used to live we had those tiny argetinian invasive ants they eat everything and attack quickly.

Problem with the Philippines is that it has the most number of ant species in the world. On our resort we have 8 kinds at least lol.
