Leafcutters (A. versicolor) love dried flowers. In fact, smaller colonies seem to prefer dried over fresh. We like to spoil our leafcutters with a variety of flowers picked fresh from the Ant Gear garden and dried in the Arizona sun. One snack-size bag of these flowers will last for some time. We recommend buying the sample pack first and if you are happy with our product, come back and buy the specific types that your ants seem to prefer. Our ants tend to prefer the white roses and golden lantana.
