So I have never kept ants before. I am currently working as an exterminator and want to experience ants in a positive way. I recently caught 3 componotus queens. One is definitely a modoc. Not sure on the other 2. I thought they didn’t need food right after nuptials but 2 of the three died after 4 days in test tube set up. I placed a small amount of honey with the third and she aggressively started to feed. Am I missing something here. Pls help.
