For this species it is enough to feed them with a drop of water with honey and a piece of a meal worm or a little insect. The colony that i am keeping (tetramorium impurum) eats crumbled nuts to.

I usualy start it when the first worker arrive. But after they finish eating, the remaining food needs to be cleaned.

After the first workers close, give them a few days like around 3 and then feed them.

1. Incorrect place.
2. Go on the official ant keeping Discord and you can trade on there. Look on the ant keeping subreddit to find the invite.
