what if you put a acrylic box that has drilled holes in the bottom that extends up above the top with a tube connected to it at the top. it would make a walk way for the ants up and you can also apply a barrier on the outside of the box.
Hmm could you sketch it out and take a pic?
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
