Re: sugar options

im not sure I have tried several times to post pics but i dont have a good camera and nobody has been able to identify them. I have seen them eat mealworms moths and spiders. But sugar has been challenging as there small and drown in even the smallest honey i could get in the testtube.

sugar options

Every time i put honey in my ants test tube they drown no matter how little i put. Sugar water in a connected test tube also doesn't seem to interest them. Any safe ideas?

queens first eggs lost in test tube transfer

I tried to move my new queen with her first eggs into a new test tube but there was a tiny space in between the tubes and the queen got caught on tape. I saved the queen but the eggs were a total loss. Is there any hope she will lay more or is all lost? help
