Ant loving Crickets... sounds cool. Will probably give the ants that tower back once they leave their old test tube.

Re: Found a (Actual) queen + Ant Journal

Ya, they were cool, how tiny black and pharaoh ants kill them... Idk. Also the queen now as 3 eggs, YAY!!! :D Don't check up on her as often as you seem to be.

Thanks for the replies. Thus far my ants haven't tried to eat any of the food provided, there is roughly 10 workers and a large pile of brood. How many workers do you need for them to start needing food?
Around 10 to 15 workers
