I figured it out....I think!

Used the chalk last night but I also took strips of packing tape and crumpled them then placed them inside the hollowed out part of the feeder.

Checked this morning...no ants. Came home from work and replenished the jelly with a fresh batch and still no ants in the container!

I'll give the wooden post another rub of chalk tonight but with this and the tape, the ants seem to have gone onto other things.
