Solenopsis Molesta have a actually been noted to prefer grease over sweets.
Really? Hmm I haven't heard about this. I'd be interested in some sources :)
Yeah, Solenopsis molesta have a weird diet.That gives them the common name "Grease ants". Also, I think that butter probably has carbohydrates. For a while I was panicking about what to feed them, since it was difficult to dig up ant nests and steal their brood to feed to them, so I was having trouble feeding them. But I finally found out that they like flies, fruit flies, and butter. I will try peanut butter when they are hungry again.
They also like grasshoppers, mealworms, and mosquitoes.
