Hi.
Here's a picture of them:https://photos.app.goo.gl/cpfL9ZqXmpqsb6fL9
I'm just wondering,do I need to give them any special needs, and how many times do I need to feed them a week?
BTW, I put them in a jar with some soil.

Colony is fairly small i reccomend putting them in a test tube or a very small container with a test tube of water the cotton has mold which could have mites. but if you have a small container mix rubbing alcahol and baby powder rub it around the sides add a small ammount of dirt not to big and boom feed them apples, honey and sugar water, crickets, roaches etc make sure when feeding bugs to freeze them dont want mites

Thanks for the tips. I just replaced the cotton ball and I hope that they would live well.
