Re: Best Beginner Nest Type

That really all depends on personal preference. You have to ask yourself if you want to see all the action as in seeing the eggs and larvae and the queen laying eggs and so on. The action that takes place inside the nest. Or do you want it to look more natural like it does outside. It's all up to yo...

Re: Crematogaster Outworld Killing Ants

I'm not sure exactly what all you have used or what type of grout you have used but I have nests and our worlds made out of grout and like I said previously it does not harm my ant's at all. It's making me very curious as to what is causing this. If it's a big out world and you have a small colony.....

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

Very good pictures. I have 2 of these Queens myself. One finally has a couple pupae and should be getting my first workers soon. The other still has small larvae. Again I will say these are very good pictures. Make sure to keep an eye on that temperature. I tried to do a similar thing with my Queens...

Re: Cale's Camponotus pennsylvanicus colony

I use the exact same products myself. I've got the smallest heat cable you can get (i have 3 actually) and they do a perfect job with heating the nests. I also have a heat mat, which is the mini, that I use to keep my feeder insects at a good temperature as well. I've got a digital thermometer that ...

Re: Cale's Camponotus pennsylvanicus colony

Check out my Camponotus subbarbatus journal. Go to the last two or three posts I made and you will see how good they are doing. The very last post is a video I took last night with a new macro lens I got for my phone. I've got to get better lighting and also get better using it but it's a really coo...

Can't wait till I ...
