Ok so now that I have this "Not A. tennesseensis" Colony.  :sore:  ( Well at least until I get an A. tennesseensis Queen  ;) )  Any special requirements I need to know? I'm sure I have the insects to feed them but I've read that they may or may not take honey or sugar water? What about the seed thing? Should I offer them as well?

 

Thanks!!

aphenogaster are usually strict carnivores in captivity but you should try sweets to see if they like it

Well they definitely like Wax Worms! Put like 4 small ones in and they were attacked immediately! :D I also added a Mulberry. Going to see if they like the fruit and or the seeds. :D
