Ant Food

Ants are the same as other living creatures and need both food and water to survive.

When it comes to food ants need protein and sugars. In the wild ants get their protein from eating other insects but in captivity live insects are difficult to find so it is possible to use protein jelly mixtures and tinned insects. Protein is important if you want your colony to grow as the protein is used by the queen to produce eggs and to feed and rear the ant larvae up to adult ants.

The sugars in the wild come from aphids and tree sap. Our sugar honey solutions are blended specifically for ants and are a perfect source of the sugars they need. Sugars are the main food eaten by ants for energy.

Some ant species have specific foods needs such as Harvester ants which collect seeds for food.
