Please Help With Ants

Woooooo… They’re back again. (Sorry for so many posts on this) It was going so well. Any other solutions? I have :

Cleaned everything out completely (containers and cabinet)
Removed the chemical trail
Set ant traps
Only put food at night (removed it in the morning)
Put Vaseline around all of the containers

And they STILL are in my Dubia roach colony. I don’t know about my superworms but they’re probably in there too. What else can I do?

Are these the tiny ants ? Is it possible that they were hiding in the wings or somewhere on the dubia ? Post a few pics of the vaseline application on your containers. No insect likes to go through vaseline, it repels them and they also would not be able to struggle through it if it's been put on thick enough.

I am currently cleaning everything out to retry. I don’t have the pics of the vasaline anymore but I can tell you it was spread out about an inch. They’re tiny ants but I’ve been checking my roaches so far. It is possible some slipped through but there were HUNDREDS of ants.

So are there hundreds in there again now or was that before ? Put a band of Vaseline about 2" wide all around the top edge of the container they can't get through it.

Hundreds now and even more before. Will do, hopefully that works and I can find where they are coming from. Who gave ants the ability to climb the unclimbable 🥲😂

Food out at night? for the dragon?

I put it around the sides since if I put it on the top they could still get through.

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
