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

Re: Feeding new colony.

True, I learned some ant owners feed their queen ants at the beginning to minimize the queen eating her own eggs.
