My attas are moving in tomorrow. I used an hamp rope for them to walk on. Is it save to use or would you remove it?

Thanks

Pictures comong soon. I only wanted to know if the material itself (hamp) can be dangerous for the ants.

Hemp should be totally fine, people often use synthetic fibers for Atta ropes with no issues. I suppose there is a chance they could cut through the hemp, but this seems pretty unlikely to me
