You said in several posts to buy live feeders and the freeze them. In that way taking one whenever my ants need protein. My question is:
How long can be the crickets in the freezer until they spoil or get bad for ants?
Keeping:
x1 Tapinoma erraticum
x2 Lasius niger

Founding:
x7 Camponotus
x1 Unknown

Wishlist:
Tetramorium sp

Agreed :) They could potentially dry out if you don't have them sealed, but other than that they should be good
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.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Tapinoma Sessile

When my insects dry out I add water and the ants love it. My ants don’t eat dried food.
