I've recently been feeding my lasius colony of 50-60 workers freeze dried bloodworms. I'll add a few drops of water to it to rehydrate them as described in this thread: http://www.formicult...bloodworm-soup/
As you can see my ants seem to be very attracted to it. The only thing is, I haven't seem them take any worms back for their brood. At the end of feeding there is always a bunch of dried bloodworms left and I'm not sure if they've actually taken any of it. Are they just drinking the juices? Do you guys think this would be an adequate protein source for the colony or should I switch to another protein source?
