Recently I caught a fairly small colony of Leptothorax Cf. Canadensis. I don't know a lot of people who keep these and was wondering how to care for them. I currently have them in a TarHeelAnts Mini Hearth and feed them sunburst nectar with earwigs.

Thank you! I got really lucky when i caught these ants and even thought to myself these look similar to temnothorax. I'm surprised any ants can go that long without food, although I have noticed that they forage very rarely and usually only take the nectar.

They're escape artists too. Can get through a 1mm crack if they desired.
