I wouldn't know, I would assume feeding them live food is safe as well, I guess I am scared in case an ant dies while trying to take it down... haha maybe something small like fly or meal worms would be an easy take down for them... but think ill start with just freezing my crickets, and maybe change it up in the future.. (:

what kind of ants where they?


also freezing the food does make them last much longer.

Going to feed all mine live food once there up to about 50 or so workers, depending on the food size as well
