I have a possible Paratopula Occulta and I do not know what it eats! It seems to accept honey but does not eat mini mealworms as I put one into its outworld and it has not eaten it. Does anyone know what Paratopula eat? I heard they eat roaches and termites but I do not have those, is there anything else they eat that I could possibly find easily?

I don't know why this slipped through the net and didn't get an answer but as you are probably aware by now adult ants drink sugar based liquids, the insects or "meat" are only needed when there are larvae to feed.
