I cleaned their out world a few days ago, they used to have about a foot long tube leading to their out world and I put a new tube about three feet long. Iwent away for day (it was dark and cloudy) when I came back they had moved a large amount of their seeds into the new long tube. I turned on my little near by light and they started moving seeds back to inworld. Now after a day they have a balance and put some seeds in tube. It's nice because the longer tube has made them very active and they get out and walk. They are always doing something in tubes.

Have to say the longer tube has really activated the ants and I reccomend this to others when there is low activity. Now there is always ant activity.lots of antenna touching. Peace Peace peace. .-chrisser
