What’s up Bug man! I caught a red velvet ant/wasp in my back yard while I was mowing and I put it in a container. What can I feed it?

Velvet Ants are flightless female wasps, and most adult wasps take nectar or other sweet, sugary liquids as food. According to BugGuide: “Adults (males?) take nectar.” Perhaps honey will suffice.
