Yes I have seen it happen. Either don't feed them excess of those seeds, or live with grass growing out of your test tube(it does look kind of cool)(you can also just feed them plain insect protein instead of seeds)

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8
