Do I put deterrent on the vinyl tubing

As the title states, should I put something like the baby powder and alcohol deterrent on the tips of the vinyl tubing or is it okay by itself?

Only if the ants have regular access to the outside of the tubing AND the tubing leads somewhere you don't want them to go. Bear in mind that "deterrent" is not necessarily "repellant".
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

Thank you very much for that answer, I was worrying about this. Now I can setup my Formicarium. Again, thank you very much.
