    Here's a quick tip that's worked great for me at keeping my trail cameras ant free.

    I had an ant problem, Sprayed ant spray around the trunk of the tree above and below the camera, problem solved.

    I tried that a few times and noticed a drop in deer pics which made me think they smell the spray on the trees. Inside the cam it's at least more contained. Have you noticed any changes in deer pics with the spray on the trees?

    No the camera was by a feeder, I also chemically treat the area around the feeder so the deer have a bug free zone to eat. I am not a believer in that deer disappear never to return if something is out of the ordinary.

    Tempo on the back of the camera, mount and around the tree where it's screwed in at and have had zero problems.
