Bro my brain is huge. I realized i dont need to remove cotton to feed them honey!! I can just pull some of the cotton out, wet it with homey water and then push it back in without fully removing cotton and risking escaping ants 8-)

I fed them two termite alates. I thought i could probably squeeze both of them through the cotton to prevent escapees and it worked!! Well kinda, one alate gaster got squished :oops: the brood pile looks good and the ants seem healthy. Cant really do a proper count as some ants are in the portal and others stand on top of each other to assert dominance :lol: will introduce them to the out world pretty soon maybe next month

Edit- they dont like apple this is for sure. I gave them some apple juice but they barely ate it so i gave them more honey and while they were busy eating that i removeed their old test tube. Well a part of it. And closed the tube with some cotton.
Do you alhave any idea what i should feed my ants for energy?
