How often should I feed honey to my small colonies?
I do it 2 or 3 times a week.
And regarding food? I feed my Formica fusca small fruit flies, one almost everyday.
I've stopped feeding them normal flies because they leave it accumulating mold inside the formicarium and blocking passage ways.
I'm still trying to reach an equilibrium. On one side I would prefer them not to accumulate moldy left overs inside the formicarium, but on the other hand I want them to have all the food they need in order to breed and grow as much as possible before hibernation.
What's your recommendations regarding food and honey guys? Thanks!
Edit: By the way, when should be the best time to remove dead flies from the outworld after not being picked up or not totally devoured? After a couple of days?
And a drop of honey (not mixed with water), will it go bad (after how many days?) or can I just leave it?
