Re: Newbie question

Thanks for all the suggestions and help you guys. It's becoming so hard to not peek to see if she's laid any eggs yet. Also, I just noticed that the lasius hybrid nests are now in stock, I'm considering getting one for when she does start producing workers, but I noticed it said "Not suitable for la...

Re: Can you remove the limit on editing?

Also, lots of little questions that could all be compiled into one post instead of a whole bunch of little ones.

...unless you want tons of little comments to make things look even more active, in which case I'm happy to help. :lol:

Re: Newbie question

Okay, I take it back. Went to my locak convenience store and found candy that comes in test tubes, so with a good cleaning I should be good to go. Just water though? No feeding?

I think ant love is finding something you can truly be passionate about. Something that drives you to learn, and something that you truly enjoy caring for.

Re: Newbie question

I don't have any test tubes, and not sure what else I could substitute for them. I probably should have also specified, I caught her in Saskatchewan. She also seems to have buried herself at the bottom of my formicarium. She dug a tunnel to the bottom, and plugged it up, so I'm really worried about ...

Re: Newbie question

Wow, thanks guys! When I checked this morning she was just tunnelling. I've been trying to offer her a variety of food but she seems more concerned with making a den first, which I can understand. So are there any foods in particular that might be better better at this stage? Would it help to collec...

You would have to ask someone else for identification. Good luck!

Re: Newbie question

I should also ask: if she(?) was caught in the wild without wings during this time of year, would she be fertilized, or is she doomed and should be released? Also I couldn't find a way to edit my post so sorry for the reply. Also just realized this probably belongs in the beginner section more than ...

Newbie question

First I would like to apologize for having my first post being a plea for help. I've always loved ants but was never really able to study them up close or learn much about them. Anywho, the other day I was outside watching ants go about their business and I spotted one in the middle of the group sit...
