Posts and questions relating to ant diet & nutrition. Let us know what you’re feeding your ants.
I moved yesterday my trapjaw ant queen into her new outworld. I left her a small drop of honey and a dead termite as food. Today i came back from school to check on her and she didnt touch the food at all. What can i do please help me i dont want her to starve to death!!!
Calm down and give her time. She only needs protein and will eat eventually. When you see her out foraging, then is a good time to feed her. Leave her alone for a few days.
She is foraging right now but she just goes over the food not even noticing it. Im pretty worried about that. I saw her law an egg. She carried it for a moment in the test tube. She stood still in the middle and started touching it with her antennae and her front legs. She did this for like 10 and then the egg was no longer in her jaws. This made me think that she might have eaten it from stress or hunger. I am feeding her some crushed termites i found and honey alone.
Ok but im worried about the eggs because i havent seen them at all. Maybe she put them against the cotron and they might have drowned... so many worries
does the outworld also affect her? the outworld i created for her has a dirt floor, but i covered the netrance to the tset tube with dirt so it is the best home for her. also is it normal that she is like over active running around fast and not sitting in her chamber?
ok thanks! srry for bothering but shes my first queen and i want her to prosper. also the species is a very hard to raise so if i succede i will be happy. and where can i buy mealworms or fruit flyes?
