Hello there - my Camponotus Aneiopolosus little colony with 4 ants including the queen are not eating anything I give them. Is there anything you suggest that I could give them?

I gave them a little spider for the larvae and some honey on a little piece of cardboard. Unfortunately they have no interest in the honey, but as for the spider, they brought it a little bit further into the tube.

Do you have any suggestions? ( Sugar or protein)

Thank you thank you 🙏🏻

What temperature are you keeping them at?
"The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer." Prov. 30:25
Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.
