Their preference is SUGAR SUGAR SUGAR! But all ants should eat carbohydrates, proteins either from bugs or human food, sugar and obviously water. Good question.

Is Forelius a common queen ant to find in America?

I think so. Why? Do you have a queen and think she is a Forelius?

no I sadly don't have a queen yet and I plan to begin antkeeping this spring coming up I'm asking because I want to know if my chances will be slim or easy in finding a Forelius queen

What state do you live in? Maybe that can help narrow down the search. I glad that you are starting to get into ant keeping. BTW I just killed a spider and waiting to see if anyone comes and finds it. The suspense :shock: is killing me :lol:
