Just wondering what the rest of you feed your Camponotus ants?? Do you feed a single queen anything different that a colony with workers?

I have a lot less experience than you, but I have fed them cooked turkey, ham, chicken for protein. I have also fed colonies wax worms that I got from the fishing dept. at Walmart. For sugar I have used sugar-water, honey, and Gatorade :lol:.

Mine seen to dislike most forms of insects. They love crickets. Also honey water and sugar water also a jolly rancher you wet. But I have tryied to give them mealworms, worms, flys, house meats, dog food, fruit, they didn't touch any of it. But I have never tried fruit flys those may work.
