I have a young colony with 6 to 7 ants(camponotus sp). I don't know where to find insects for my ants. There aren't any insects in the nature because i live in a city and i didn't found them in pet stores. where do you think i could find some??
If you can't find them in pet stores, perhaps try fishing shops? They are sure to carry live bait.
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.
A lot of pet stores keep crickets in the back room as feeder insects for reptiles. If the pet store has reptiles I am quite sure they will also have crickets. At the pet store I go to I just tell the store owner I need a dozen crickets and she goes and gets me a bag. I also buy cricket food and keep them alive myself so I always have a fresh source of protein for my colony. They are very easy to keep alongside my nest, I just throw a few cubes of food in daily and keep the water pillow full every couple weeks.
