i've heard that camponotus will eat freeze dried Mealworms. im going to try that out but maybe that could work for your ants.

Cook chicken. Crushed insect bite from stores. Frozen crickets (bought frozen) and any other real source of protein.

I'm a lover of life but I also understand the circle of life. Some life must be taken to support an other. It's only murder if it's done for sport but feeders pre killed is the best option for your ants.
Research is important before during and even after you have established a colony. There is always time to learn and to listen to others experiences. Live by this and your ants will thrive. Fail to do so and your experience may be brief.
