This little pillbug was crawling around the entrance of the Bread Canyon. He crossed the busy road three times!
The ants don't care very much for the sweet honey water. They like bread much more. Should I give them pure honey?
Early in the morning, at 8:29 sharp, I headed out the door with an oral syringe full of honey water. I headed to the Bread Canyon and placed bread and droplets of honey water. Not very many came. Maybe they are on full stock of food. Most of them headed for the bread. The other few didn't drink much for long since they were so tiny. After drinking, they returned to the nest in the grassy spot. They probably filled up their 'social stomachs', an organ that stores food, and will regurgitate the honey water for their friends. I will check how it's going later. Until next post! :D
