Re: I need some advice really quickly.

Never force ants to move anywhere. Offer new nest space and let the ants move on their own. If you try to force them they will often eat their eggs and larvae or generally do bad because they're not ready for a nest.

Well they reject food alot, i gave them a cricket leg after they haven't been fed for awhile and they tossed it in t...
