Yeah, more like some pebbles, which wasn't my intention. Also a lot of seeds -- I put some Eragrostis tef seeds in their foraging arena after the first workers started eclosing, thinking that they might grab a couple, but one little Tetramorium worker gathered every last piece almost immediately. I think that pile of brood has largely been fed on this hoard of seeds, supplemented with sugars and insect protein.nightxwolf88 wrote:Is that just a little soil in there with them?
The rest is coconut fiber, which is turning out to be a very useful substrate for all my ants.
My camera battery died before I could photograph my other ants. Those will come sometime in the future, hopefully after my Formica neogagates queen gets her first and only worker for the year.
