Re: Feeding new colony.

True, I learned some ant owners feed their queen ants at the beginning to minimize the queen eating her own eggs.

Is Styrofoam safe for ants?

Just asking because I know that carpenter ants can eat/dig through styrofoam but is it safe for other ants as a set up material?

Re: Feeding new colony.

Though I am starting out, I know from a AntsCanada tutorial (or normal video) that queens + workers don't need food till the 10th or 15th worker, so i suggest that you count the ants and if you have 10-15 ants, put food in there test tube or out world if you see them foraging in the out world.
