The cravings of queen ants

by | May 30, 2010 | Uncategorized | 1 comment

Why do the ants ignore the baits I so carefully laid for them? Helpful staff at KiwiCare explain that it all depends on what the queen requires. Like a pregnant woman, her cravings change. And so she instructs the workers to bring her protein, fat or carbohydrate. 

I’ve been laying a protein bait it seems, and the queen is not amused! And so I’m told to try the liquid sweet bait which is high carbohydrate.

    Hi Juliet,

    Yes that is correct – apparently you should do a test – lay out a dish of parmesan powdered cheese and one with sugar and see which one the ants go for. Then mix borax with the one they like and there you go!
