If you have a seed harvester colony like the messor barbarus, what can you expect seeds (any seeds?) to provide them? Is it protein, making insect types of food uneccecary.
Btw is there a substitute for insect food (at least for the beginning), like chicken and other types of meat (preferably cooked?) ?
