    little black ants are on the cages. Should i worry about it? there are no dead anything anywhere, but one doe is due any sec . Maybe they will go away? Or do I need to hose em? There really isn't anywhere right now to move them where there aren't ants.

    i would either move the rabbits or put terro baits out. The ants can and will kill small animals

    IF your cages are on a stand... (legs on ground) put each leg in a coffee can, fill the can with water and float a little oil on top.

    The ants won't go into the water and the oil keeps the water from evaporating.
