The winter and the hibernation time are coming and i wan't to add some protein for the last time. The pet store is far away from me and i can't buy insects. I search for insects in my garden, but i don't found anything. Are you guys know any alternative ways to feed my ants with protein?

Ants sometimes accept protien sources such as cooked chicken or wet dog food.
