Will any baby powder do?
This is something I was wondering. Most baby powder sold around me that I've seen isn't made of talcum powder; it's made of corn starch. Being organic, I would think it could promote bacterial or fungal growth, but I don't actually know one way or another. Is corn starch ok as well? Does it depend on the humidity maintained in the formicarium/out world that it's used in? I made sure to buy talcum powder because it's what I've seen recommended, but I haven't seen anyone mention anything about corn starch.
I was also wondering about if Corn Starch would work in lieu of Talc. I do not have a big enough colony to test it myself.
