Your feeders are great! I've never had an issue with one, and it's really reduced my Tetramorium death rate now that they no longer drown in sugar water.

Co-owner and founder of Mountain Myrmeculture

Ants I have:

2 Formica fusca group- 1 with brood, 1 with 3 nanitics

1 Tetramorium immigrans colony-10 workers

1 Dorymyrmex insanus- 1 queen, used to have workers

1 Pogonomyrmex occidentalis- 4 workers, a decent amount of brood

1 large P. occidentalis colony- around 50 workers, plenty of brood

1 Lasius sp.- 2 workers, Brood
