Thank you for your question. The only thing you would accomplish by adding apple juice is attracting ants. I suggest you consult with your county Extension office, where staff are familiar with issues in your region. Here is their webpage: https://ag.umass.edu/extensionoutreach/umass-extension-in-your-community/extension-in-southeastern-massachusetts Good luck!
