Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've posted on here. My M. minimum colony is still going strong, and with only 1 escape incident (so far).
Recently, though, I've had a new problem. I've been using ByFormica feeders without much issue for the past several months, but for some reason, in the last few weeks, dozens of ants have ended up drowning inside the feeders, prompting me to look into other feeder options. While I know some ants drowning is unavoidable, recently there have been so many that I'm worried about the colony, as it's still quite small. I think they can drink through the steel mesh on another water dispenser I have, but I'm not sure what to do about the Sunburst nectar.
Are there other types of feeders that the ants can't climb into that you all would recommend? Thanks!
