When we lived in Thailand ant cups were a must. They are double cup: in the outside cup you put water, and in the inside cup goes the table leg or chair leg. If where you are living doesn’t have ant cups, this is how we made our own.
Get a bowl and a cup (large enough to fit your table leg). Put the table leg in smaller cup/bowl, then put that in another bowl and fill the outer bowl with water. This will keep ants off your table, cabinet, etc.
