Hi, this might be a rather old topic, but i saw that people here is not very concerned with ants.
Well I'm very concerned with them.
Although not a hamster, but my old hedgehog died because of ants. He was bitten in his upper inner lip, and his eye. They quickly got infected and hurt and got worse. He's old, he can't fight any ants.
The ants I'm talking about is very small, 2 mm long at most, and are red. I live in the tropics so I'm not sure if you would encounter them where they live.
Just saying that if they can kill an elderly hedgehog, then can kill an old hamster too. And they might be able to kill younger ones.
Maybe I over exaggerated this matter but after I lost my baby I don't want to lose another to ants. I wouldn't let any little ants inside a pet's enclosure anymore.
And the repellents for ants in this topic is worth trying, although I usually do with chalk specially made to repel ants and roaches. Of course I would take caution to not let hamsters to get too close to those chalk marks.

If The Ants are looking for a source of food, try scatter feeding underneath all the bedding, the ants won't go under neath the bedding and look for food if they do not see the food themselves. This is also very fun for the hamster. This happened to me before, and I did this method and it worked pretty well until the summer flies problem started ( I ended up just moving my tank).

I solved the ants problem by leaving the cover of a container (must be bigger than your cage) under my cage and filling it with water, its almost like a 'trench', that way, the ants won't be able to crawl in anymore
