Re: New Camponotus queens...ID needed

Alrighty, thanks again for the information. Both of the new ones had decent size brood pile when they were caught with at least 5 pupa each so it shouldn't be long before the nanitics arrive.

Re: New Camponotus queens...ID needed

So upon closer inspection I don't think there is any more red coloring except for the legs. The stripes on the gaster though do seem more prominent than my other Camponotus pennsylvanicus Queen and they don't seem quite as dark black although they are black with the red legs as you can see. I'm gues...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

First off I'd like to say I really like how detailed you are with your Journal. I think I keep up with yours more than any LOL. I need to stop slacking and get mine up to date. As far as your new formicaria I too had seen the post about making those and thought about trying. Now seeing yours I think...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

I've had this problem once when I first got it but I use bottled water to refill mine and also to fill my test tubes and excetera but I also keep the bottle water close by so it stays the same temperature as pretty much everything else around my setups. Maybe that could help alleviate the problem. I...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

I know you may not want to hear this but seeing as she already had workers she has already lost the reserves she initially had upon founding her first workers so she will more than likely not make it. I know it's probably hard to take that in butt I would just prepare yourself for it because more th...

Re: New Camponotus queens...ID needed

I will check when I get home but these next two pictures are of one my friend caught about a week ago. I know for a fact it is a Camponotus chromaiodes ... I just really haven't looked at the two I brought home yesterday because I want them to get settled in before I stress them anymore. http://i32....

New Camponotus queens...ID needed

Well me and a friend finally met up for the first time yesterday and did some Queen hunting. We came up with three of these Queens and he kept one and I took two but I know they are a Camponotus species but I'm not sure whether they are Camponotus pennsylvanicus or Camponotus chromaiodes due to the ...

Re: Need an ID

I actually had the same species up until about 2 weeks ago and I released mine. For some reason I had a hard time getting mine to take anything sweet but they took to protein like crazy.

Re: Are my queens suitable in this setup?

Yeah using a test tube would be way better because the cotton can hold water behind it and there would be a constant supply of moisture. Using it in the setup shown you would constantly have to open the top and rehydrate the cotton or some method like that.
