Re: Hibernation

My Camponotus and Formica both have done what you have described. I am in the process of getting my colonies into hibernation but it seems my Tetramorium and Crematogasater are still doing their thing....but to you question, id say yes, it is that time and certainly sounds like they know it too lol....

Re: Daisy-Chaining the new Hybrid 2.0

Cant wait to see it!!! Sounds like you have a plan so run with it. I have a Crematogaster ashmeadi colony that originally was just the queen and id say around 50 workers (i saved them from being killed) and now they have probabyly reached the 200-300 mark id say and the queen is still producing eggs...

Order #88654

I am just curious to know if my order has shipped yet or not? I haven't received an email other than confirmation of payment and it's been almost a week. Normally I know something by now is the only reason I am asking. Thanks in advance

Re: Camponotus castaneus from louisiana

Camponotus pennsylvanicus are super easy to find and right now, you could actually find one with nanitics already. Look in semi rotten logs, especially close to where a limb has been broke off or a knot in the log. I found so many this year and still have 2 myself. One of which had her first Major e...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

Hello my friend. I feel like it's been so long since I have been on here but I've been so busy with work and all of my ants that I seem to rarely have time anymore. But I wanted to inform you that my camponotus pennsylvanicus got her first major as of today. I can't believe she got one this year. Sh...

Re: Camponotus castaneus from louisiana

Yes it truly is a learning experience for us both. I know my Camponotus pennsylvanicus colonies have a few more workers than my C. castaneus, but they still prefer the smaller soft-bodied insects compared to say crickets and superworms. I'm not sure if it's because they are smaller workers or what b...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

Come to think of it my first Camponotus pennsylvanicus queen I caught, I brood boosted her (curiousity) and they all eclosed around the same time as her nanitics. All was doing fine until I put their test tube into a foraging area I had made for them and the first week I would say they acted very st...
