I've been looking through some recipes of media for fruit flies, and all of them include yeast, as soon as fruit flies eat the fungal cells themselves, not fruit.
But can you actually use yeast in order to feed ants directly? I mean ant species that don't grow fungus gardens but eat different fruits and maybe oats. Maybe you could trick ants into feeding on the fungus somehow?
Yeast cells are not like plant cells, and technically there's nothing special in them that ants could not digest...
