Apart from the ants, these are one of the best-selling products of this company, and rightfully so! These particular types of sweet liquids are the perfect source of sugar for your beloved pet ants!

As you can see, they are available in many different flavors! On their online shop, they currently offer 6 different flavors, one sweeter than the other! This one in particular, for example, is called blue slushie, and it’s made with some type of blue raspberry!

Why Sugar?

Ok, but why do I have to feed my ants sugar? Is it really necessary? Well, short answer: Yes!

Sugar is a particular type of carbohydrate, and takes an important spot in the diet of ants. As you may already know, ants are one of the most hard-working creatures in the animal kingdom! They always have something to do: finding a new food source, carrying extremely heavy objects to create amazing nest structures, and caring for the new generation of young ants. They never stop!

All this uninterrupted work needs to be fueled by an immense amount of energy! And here comes the sugar! Sugar is one of the most calorie-dense substances you can find, and using it as the main energy source has lots of advantages:

  • The first one is that sugar is an exceptionally lightweight substance! This simple but important characteristic gives sugar a tremendously high value-to-weight ratio, making the transportation back to the nest a highly efficient job! The less energy you need to bring it back to the colony, the more it remains to absorb!
  • The second one is that sugar is extraordinarily common to find in the wild! This simple carbohydrate can be easily found in a lot of plants, in almost every fruit, and some kinds of insects can even produce it when they need it! Some species of ants have actually learned how to farm aphids just to get some of their sweet honeydew! That’s so cool if you think about it!

In a nutshell, sugar is basically liquid energy for ants, and in order to get their tiny hands on some of this extremely precious substance, they are willing to travel far and wide all over the world!

Another very popular product used in ant keeping to provide your ants with a source of healthy sugar is this! These particular types of colored jelly cups are extremely easy to find, and also very cheap!

Are They Really Worth It?

Now I know what you are all thinking about. But why should I buy a sugary liquid when I can simply make it myself at home? That’s actually a very good question, and like all good questions, it needs a proper answer!

In short, the sugar snaps are a lot more than simple sugar water! The liquids that Ant Antics provides are full of essential and beneficial substances, things that are not so easy to find at the grocery store!

Just to mention a few, the sugar snaps contain fructose, glucose, sodium, calcium, iron, magnesium, and much more! They even contain some vitamins! Like vitamin B2, vitamin B4, and vitamin B5! As said before, they’re much more than sugar water!

Do Ants Like It?

But will my ants like it?

Well, I have been testing the sugar snaps for some time now, and I can confidently say that my colonies love them! Every time I put some drops of this sugary liquid inside the outworld, a swarm of ants instantly appears out of nowhere, assaulting the precious substance like there’s no tomorrow!

They drink every single drop I give them in a matter of minutes! Like a bunch of jaguars hunting for their appetizing prey! It’s actually really cool watching the ants completely fill their gaster and bring it back to the nest, sharing the newly found food source with all the other members of the colony! Ants are such unselfish animals!
