In essence, yes. Although, it's not as simple as 'gut-load' for crickets. I was trying to determine if feeding items high in calcium, like leafy greens, would increase the calcium content of ants. It sounded good on paper, but from what i'm being told here, any benefit would be miniscule and (according to Lester) might even be negative.
So, pay me no mind and toss your ants in the fridge!

:Loren, now I have a question. I am a bit confused on how you are gut loading your ants. I care for them based off the care-sheet from antsalive.com. That is I keep the sand damp, and spray down the sides of their tank. I feed them small pieces of oranges for added liquid. Additionally, I keep 1,000 ants in a ten gallon acqaurium in a room set at 68 degrees. Just trying to figure out how you are getting more vitamins into your ants thanks!
