springtails being hunted

hey everyone, I have colony of Aphaenogaster longiceps thats very small at the moment, and everytime i try and introduce springtails to keep mold to a minimun they attack them. Is there a certain reason for this am i possibly not feeding them enough or are they just not wanting to share their space? Has anyone ever had similar problems?

I personally have a large Tetramorrium Immigrans colony and they are OBSESSED with eating springtails, despite the fact that I feed them 2+ large superworms a day, plus the occasional dead mouse. (Compliments to my cats) I think it may just be an instinct thing but I do recommend you try giving them more food.
