I recently have had a Forelius pruinosus queen hatch her first workers. I really need to thank batspiderfish with helping me trough a lot of my first ant keeping questions. He/she helped me id all my queens i caught including this one here so if your reading this thanks, thanks a lot idk if you get a thanks often but i really am appreciative all of your help. Anyways i tried taking 1 out of the four niantics to test barriers and baby powder and rubbing alcohol didn't work at all it didn't even seem to phase them i put her back not wanting to disrupt them too much but in the next couple days ill try maybe tape and then p/a mix or Vaseline maybe im not sure but any suggestions would help thanks.

best barrier ever is just plain baby powder no alcohol. just rubble the powder on the side thickly and it will work. although you might have a messy outworld floor.
