I found her on my floor weak and almost dying. Giving her some honey made her perk up.

I’m sorry, I just realized the link sent me to the wrong place. Looking at the picture now I think it’s actually some sort of wasp, not an ant.

Well, if it was me, I would put her in your freezer--- Most quickest way of euthanizing, plus it's less violent :O

I decided to keep her. Paper wasps can be kept as pets and it’s sounds like a new and exciting challenge to expand my hobby.
