Re: when eggs are gonna hatch

Re: What shall I do with my queen ants?

The rest is still in the same bottle/bucket/whatever you used. :shock: :o That's very uncool since we are all for AntLove Forever or at least most of us.

Re: What food is favored among ants?

Ants need two types of foods, Protein and Sugar. Protein is used to feed the brood and the queen, and sugar is consumed by the workers.
As far as preferences, it just depends on the species and individual colony.
