First time feeding!

I recently bought meal worms for my ants (yesterday) and know that I have to keep them cool or they will become bettles and stuff but anyways, I have a queen and one worker with some larve... how do I feed them their first meal of mealworms?

Nothing really they will be fine. The Formica one is just a little better but overall no difference

Early feeding

My one queen one worker colony just got out of hibernation (Formica Subserecia). Can I give them a small grain of rice (cooked) as a meal?

Emergency!

Every two weeks I check my ants in hibernation, I come to one of them and the mild is crazy and they have no water! I need to transfer them fast but they won’t move... any help I need to do this as fast as possible!

Re: Plastic naturalistic

Both dirt/ substrate in the bottom and out world on the top! It is a little squishy but not so bad.

When and how without fridge

Hey I’m keeping some colony’s in test tubes (ones in plastic test tube and other in glass test tube) and I’m from Illinois, should I be hibernating them it’s usally around 40f to 20f degrees in the winter. I also need to know how to hibernate them without a fridge/mini fridge. And yes I own a fridge...
