Acromyrmex versicolor Food Mix

Acromyrmex versicolor Food Mix

A collection of local plants and other food, sun-dried for use with Acromyrmex versicolor. This mix is designed to provide ample food for founding queens and smaller colonies of Acromyrmex versicolor. This mix has been tested for over two years to ensure each component is an optimal food item for Acromyrmex versicolor. 

When using this mixture with founding queens, it is recommended to rotate components with each feeding, rather than using the same item repeatedly. When using with an outworld, a portion of the mix can be offered, and the ants will slowly take in pieces as needed. Being dried, the plants will last indefinitely if kept completely dry.

  • Spring Mix

    This mix uses flowers that bloom in the springtime, and will become available around April, and kept in stock as supplies last. As with the Fall Mix, every component has been extensively tested and proven to be an optimal source of food for fungus growing ants, specifically for Acromyrmex veriscolor. The mix may also be accepted by Trachymyrmex and Atta species, however this is not guaranteed.

    Components:
    Palo Verde Flowers
    Yellow Peacock Flowers
    Texas Sage Flowers
    Texas Sage Leaves
    Mesquite Leaves
    Steel-Cut Oats
