What makes this different from nectar/honey water? Does it have additional nutrients? Is it solely a carbohydrate source or does it also contain protein?

SUNBURST is:

  • A shelf-stable sucrose solution formulated for optimal receptivity among many species of ants
  • 99.8% natural, wholesome ingredients - high receptivity formula compatible with all species of ants
  • Product will not spoil, and no refrigeration is required
  • In addition to sugar, Sunburst supplies the perfect balance of salts and essential micronutrients, commonly absent in captive ant diets, to stimulate appetite and promote natural feeding response
  • Feed alongside insects and other natural foods for a nutritionally complete diet

The short list of ingredients are listed on the label and product page.

Good luck with this.  What I like is having something pre-mixed that doesn't spoil.  That's extremely tempting.  Mixing up small batches of honey water is a bit of a pain and not one of the appealing aspects of the hobby.  Looking forward to trying it.

Our pilot run SUNBURST inventory has been received and processed by Amazon in the U.S.

 

Existing orders will ship from Amazon on or before June 29 with FREE 2-day shipping, as promised.  NEW orders will ship via the shipping method selected at checkout.

 

New:

SUNBURST may be added to Formula Blue 100 for sweet-loving ants.  SUNBURST and Formula Blue 100 may each be used separately, or mixed together, to create the perfect balance.  Using SUNBURST and Formula Blue 100 significantly decreases an antkeeper's dependence on insects and other natural foods.

 

Buy SUNBURST today, only on Amazon.com!

Got mine yesterday. Formica colonies seem to take it reservedly so far.

What's the expiration date on the bottom right corner of the label?  I have two different formulations being sold under the same SKU.

It's not a miracle food. If ants don't take to sugary foods, this will likely not be any different.

If you have better results with another sugary food, let me know.

I have a few questions about the sunburst nectar. How should this be stored once opened? Also how long is it good for after it has been opened? And how was the expiration date determined?

It is shelf stable.  Refrigeration is not required.  The date was determined by examining products with similar ingredients and will be changed if it is determined that an adjustment is necessary.

 

Are you having issues, or were you just curious?
