I have a container where I keep earthworms. I was just wondering if I could feed these to my Camponotus Sansabeanus ants.

Be very careful with worms. Where did they come from? Worms get full of pesticides and other toxins that can kill a colony, so when in doubt, I would seriously reconsider.

Main interest is C. Pennsylvanicus, interested in most native ants to my area.
