DIY Ant Monitoring Treat Palette

Discover the favorite foods of your pet ants or monitor the variety of ant species in an area! Draw the shape of a painter’s palette on a piece of paper, cut out the template and use the template to cut out the palette shape from a piece of thin cardboard. Gather a variety of foods from different food groups, place the foods on the palette and write the name of the food next to each food serving. Place the palette in your ant’s foraging area or in your yard and monitor the foods that your ants select or the types of ants that visit the palette to forage.
