    Well the title says it all! Just wondering as today Ive noticed quite a few of your regular black ants on the patio area where the hutch is and when I was dissenfecting the hutch today Ive noticed a couple in and out of the hutch!

    Are these harmful to my buns?

    My outdoor buns have never had problems with them (Rosie and Ady)
    I don't think they are harmful to them

    I have never had a problem with them, I dont think they are a problem for bunnies, dont think they can hurt much really, never heard of them hurting anything, other than the flying ones of course, they bite!

    Re the ants, my dad told me to use Jayes fluid in a watering can on the patio area, it kills them off and they never come back (aparently) though I'd move the hutch well away before you do it as it seriously stinks
