The 1000 workers is just a guess but in the first year I went from one 2L soda bottle filled 3/4 of the way with soil to four filled about the same with soil and one as the foraging area. In the second year I was up to eight filled with soil and had to add another foraging area. I also added one as the garbage dump. If my memory serves me right I feed about 300 different food items. It included about 100 different seeds unknown number of insects, a few different fruits, wild honey (watered down with rain water) including bee larvae, eggs and pupae when available. There was always a constant supply of water, in the form of a 20oz bottle large tubing and a few cotton balls. If you want a can try to make a complete list of what I feed them in a different post that way I don't take over this post.

Then I took it out and place it in an empty container. Then counted them as they crawled out and repeated it over and over again hundreds of times. It took about 6 hours to do.
