Welcome to the forum. Are you asking how to get rid of the ants and where to store the bird cage when you travel?

With a bird in residence, be very careful of anything you spray inside the RV. If there are ants at the campground, we shake a little Amdro or like ant bait around the tires and stabilizers.

For ants inside, get a borax based powder to put in some little paper trays inside the cabinets where you see the little critters.

Our exterminator at home, uses a water based spray that once dry does not bother the pets.
