Re: Fruit fly trap question

I have same situation. How do you solve the problem? My colony is still small and they consume only one or two insects a week. Once I caught about 10 crickets and froze them, but they didn't accept the frozen ones. So even if I buy some bugs from the pet marts, they may be bunch of them, but my ants...

Re: How to properly post in the ID section.

Re: How do ants find their way back home?

I don't think it is as simple as that. Following pheromone trail is one of their many strategies. Some ants (desert ants) remembered their steps to feel how far they are away from home. Pheromone may be quickly evaporated in desert environment so that they cannot rely on solely pheromone trails. Som...
