I went to remove the mealworms and put a new one in today, and the old ones were completely hollow :o! An ant even crawled out of one, so now I have to spend ten minutes checking each piece of refuse before I throw it in the trash can. The population is rising quickly, with at least one ant having eclosed today. There are now consistently about 10 workers hanging around outside the enclosed sand-chamber they built (Luckily, newer Mini-Hearths don't have enough loose sand for that) where, a month ago,  there would only have been a couple.

Yeah, I haven't seen a nasty mealworm stain in a while!

I think another ant might have hatched today.
