: I will work on sealing up any cracks then. I read that Harvesters aren't as good at climbing as the ants we have around here. Now that the HLs are in a larger, warmer environment than they were at the pet store, they have really changed. Much quicker, lots more energy. I'm enjoying watching them a lot more. They bury themselves under the sand to sleep. I don't know how they breathe under there. Then they come out in the morning when the heat lamp kicks in. They sit half under, half out of the sand for a bit, then come out to bask. They really don't like crickets, I can't wait for the ants to get here. One important question I forgot to ask. Do you dust your crickets and/or ants with Calcium or Vitamins?
:I do not use anything on the food items. There is too much filler that is a waste and can cause more problems than it would help. If I do use a vitamin, I use a liquid vitamin (Reptisol) diluted 50X to 100X less than recommended on label. Very, very dilute. And I only use it in the spring for about 3 - 5 drinking water changes. When the HLs awaken from their hibernation, they might need a little boost. Sounds like you should have a good start. Lester G. Milroy III
