Short of moving the box to a new location have a look around and find the trail that leads back to the nest and dab some Talon Ant Gel around the box and near the nest. Avoid sprays at all cost. Pretty good stuff when it comes to ants. Hope this helps.

Put the legs of the flybox or whatever it stands on in pots of water so the little beggars cant climb up.
