I mean it will depend if your lucky enough and got a queen.

Sadly I know othing about the species, but if they have workers/nanitics then your at least in some luck.

Sugars are almost always going to be a requirement, after that though is finding proteins they can eat, Fruit Flies are always a good start, if you have them in a set up and are worried about how to feed them, if you can put their set up in a bigger container, and place a straw through the cotton at the end you can use the container as a makeshift outworld and place foods and sugars there without worrying about it causing mould in the tube or scaring them too much.

Thats all the advice I can give, hopefully someone with experience on them will be able to help.
