A honey-sweet death

OK, this is a macabre title ( I`m sorry!) and still, it`s a true story:
 
Last year – in springtime – we had a small invasion of ants in our kitchen. And I must say I really like these fascinating insects.
But NOT in the kitchen!
 
The ants were targeted on our food cupboard, but all the food inside was safe.
Couldn`t find out what was so attractive to the ants… And there was no chance to get rid of them without a trap (sorry!).
After they were off our kitchen, I`ve checked all food and … no traces of ants anywhere.
 
Months later in wintertime:
Wanted to drink a cup of tea sweetened with honey, wondered why the cap of the honeypot was so easy to open, and then…
this:

The honey was so attractive!  And for some ants a deadly trap…
They had eaten through the incrusted cap. The honeypot was the only food I had forgotten to check in spring…
