figure out how they are getting up. Paint a thick line of Tanglefoot (link attached but many feed stores also carry it.). Make sure there isn't a path, and don't get this on your bee suit. Don't put on your landing board, just on the stand. What kind of stand do you have? I have tried cinnamon. I occasionally put ant block in a container that ants can get in and nothing else, to wipe out a particularly aggressive hill, but cinnamon didn't work well, and antblock is a pretty dangerous pesticide. Remember you're going to eat this honey. Find their trail, keep weeds trimmed and post a pic of your hive stand
