Best Feeders For Your Ants? – The Ant Pod

Listen to the best ant keeping podcast on the Internet: The Ant Pod!

In this episode of the AntPod, the hosts dive into the world of feeder and breeder animals for ant keeping. They explore a variety of feeder animals, including cockroaches, mealworms, fruit flies, crickets, grasshoppers, maggots, and even small rodents like baby mice! The discussion revolves around the pros and cons of these different feeders and how they are used in ant keeping.

The hosts share their personal experiences with various feeders. One host, for example, has experimented with roaches, fruit flies, crickets, grasshoppers, and several types of worms. Another is currently trying to cultivate a self-sustaining roach colony and has experimented with a flightless fruit fly starter kit.

The conversation also covers the topic of breeding feeder animals. The hosts discuss their experiences with breeding different types of roaches, such as Dubia roaches and Red Runners, and note the challenges and successes they’ve had. They also talk about mealworm farms, highlighting that mealworms are a popular choice for new ant keepers due to their ease of use and low maintenance.

Fruit flies, another common feeder, are discussed in detail, with one host sharing their experience with them. They note that fruit flies are easy to maintain and breed, requiring just fresh fruits and vegetables.

The hosts also touch on the use of crickets and grasshoppers as feeders. While they are a good protein source, some hosts find them difficult to keep alive for extended periods. The hosts mention that crickets are particularly liked by larger ant colonies due to their size and nutritional value.

The episode concludes with a discussion on the nutritional aspects of different feeder animals. The hosts debate the protein content in various feeders, like roaches and protein jellies, and how these affect the health and growth of ant colonies.

Throughout the episode, the hosts share tips, tricks, and personal anecdotes, providing a comprehensive view of the different feeding options available to ant keepers.
