Re: Trying a store bought food jelly

UPDATE: I finally got the colony to move into the new AC nest and as a treat I gave them the "Nectar" cup and they instantly swarmed it. Even after 3 days there is a min of 30+ workers feeding on it, they even started moving small rock pebbles onto the cup as they always do with their food (hiding ...
