Re: Which barrier is best for TINY TINY ants

I agree that baby powder when mixed with rubbing alcohol, is somewhat innefective for small species. My Tetramorium could cross it. However, plain baby powder, (no alcohol and applied with a dry cotton ball lightly) works incredibly well for my Tetra.

Re: Not active

They don't need to be active. As long as they have access to food in an outworld (not the tube itself) using the drinking straw method, they should be alright. If you think the tube is really dirty, you can move them, but likely you have time.

Re: How mutch protine

Never feed your ants house flies, or any insect from outside. They carry dangerous bacteria and chemicals. as far as how much protein goes, there isn't a formula.

Re: Solenopsis

Camponotus is very susceptible to stress related issues, while other species like tetramorium and solenopsis more hardy.

Re: Pavement Ant Queen?

They shouldn't be housed together unless they are polygynous which I don't think Formica is. They will eventually fight to the death.

Re: no major

Don't worry about it. As long as you are feeding them well they will come eventually.
