Just been out to the hutches and in both levels there are ants. They seem to be mainly in the lower level where woody and Jessie are but there are some up too with the guine pigs too.

Are they harmful? I'm going to go and pour boiling water over them but is there anything else I can do, bearing in mind they are inside the hutch?

Don't understand why they are there - did a full clean out and disinfected and scrubbed the floor and walls yesterday, and they appeared today!!

They can bite. I sat on an ant's nest once...

Ouch!!!!

Buns an piggies don't seem at all bothered by them, and I've just put the citronella bags in there so I'm hoping ants hate citronella too and will go away!!
