Hello ant lovers! I just wanted to know while I was waiting for my queens to get her first workers, what are the sugar to water/honey to water ratios? Does it have to be exact or just a little sugar/honey in a bit of water? Thanks in advance for all the help! :D

3-4 parts water and 1 part sugar seems to be the common thing. Although it doesn't really matter my ants took 1:1 mix as well.
