Thanks MadVampy!
I didn’t see this post before. I bought some for my ants. Haven’t found a better source or supplier yet. Do you still feed these?
Also my colony is approx at 60 workers now but I’m worried feeding one cup would be a waste or it would spoil too fast before they could consume one cup. The package doesn’t say you can refrigerate or freeze the sealed cups or open cups. I know Mikey mentioned in a video he froze his but they were from Japan I believe and I’m not sure of the ingredients. There’s also a gel products you mix by Repashy. I thought about trying them as a food source for my crickets and ants.
Interesting this popped up! I recently ordered these for my ants... not a hit... using it for my feeders and they love it. (Meal worms, super worms, the corresponding darkling beetle, and crickets)

I just tried the banana so far they aren’t touching it. I heard from someone else banana was the least favourite. After purchasing I noticed the protein % was very low compared to some others. I would like to try another brand to see if there is a different result.
