They are a fast growing species. Fairly easy to keep and pretty hardy. I found that mixing baby powder and alcohol as a barrier didn't work. they were able to climb over it easily. What does work is to just dab a cotton ball into some dry baby powder and then dab it onto the sides of the outworld.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
