Re: Updates from a Danish noob

28/6 2019 The Jelly is not a huge success, the ants go to it occasionally but it not like the mehl worms where a group of ants will start feeding as soon as they discover it. But for now it is the best solution for my squeamish ant sitter. If anybody have another suggestion feel free to write it her...

Re: Ant Feeding (test tube 10+ workers)

as i said, no expert. Ants require very little oxygen. my setup is close to air tight but i open it every day to let in fresh air and feed. it is around 1 liter in volume and the ants have stayed in there for a month and all seams fine :roll: .

Re: Lasius niger
