Trap jaw Ants

My Trapjaw ants seem to make a mess inside of the hybrid nest. (Storing food, dead ants etc, inside the nest. (2 queens and about 40 workers)

Should I add another Nest so that they can have some clean space or
Just let it be?

I have an Outworld but they only seem to grab food and take it to the neat and make a mess.

Any thoughts???

I wouldn't worry about it. They will have designated a part of their nest as a garbage disposal. Once they grow in numbers and need more space, they'll empty it out into the outworld.

Thanks for the reply!!!!

Figured out what they like to eat (finally) picky eaters (fruit flies & crickets) water and sugar water.

Anyway, they seem to be growing in numbers now and I have a heat mat to keep the nest warm. (Hybrid nest) Though about getting the other upright nest but they seem to be shy.

Will keep the group posted. 😊👍
