What do you guys think about feeding worms you buy from online like uncle jim's worms to your ants? They aren't wild. I would assume they would be pesticide-free as well?

If your speaking of plain earth worms from a shop, I imagine it would be safer, but I've also heard that earth worms just aren't very nutritious for ants.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
