Hey I just made my first honey water test tube about 4 days ago and I checked the cotton on it and it’s alrea super molded, is this normal? What are the proportions for the water and honey

Give your ants fresh sugar water. The test tube is only for colonies that will drink all of it in a few days.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
