Default thread for small bluegill foam flies

Hi -- I mostly tie with 6/0 and 8/0 uni threads for small bluegill/trout nymphs, etc. I'm tying some foam beetles and ants and was wondering if you guys had a preference for thread with these, or do you just use the same stuff you would for other flies?

I've noticed that even with a thread base along the entire hook, some of my foam likes to slide around a bit under thread torque. I was wondering if a heavier, wax thread might be better for these guys.

Thanks,
