These ants get their name from their love of sugary foods. Make sure they have a regular supply of honey or sugar water to go along with their protein. They have both minor and major casts. These sugar ants have an attractive striped gastor and are quite relaxed, however they can bite if they feel threatened. Since this species is more active at night (and mornings and evenings), they are placid and easy to care for, making a great colony for anyone to raise.
