Re: False Honeypot Ants/Queen Care. (Prenolepis imparis)

I would attempt to introduce them to each other when they are ready to move into a formicarium. However if you find more next year I would recommend that you put them together in a test tube setup first thing.

Re: Need ID plz...

To be more specific I would say Camponotus Castaneus.

Re: Need ID plz...

My best guess would be Camponotus, but I am probably wrong.

Looks like a queen and could be camponotus but I am probably wrong.

About how long foes it take for false honeypot ant eggs to develop?

I currently have two false honeypot queens in a testtube set up. Apparently one of them has now laid eggs. How long does it take for them to mature?

Re: False Honeypot Ants/Queen Care. (Prenolepis imparis)

Hi, I'm starting my own colony too and here are some of the things I learned. The are a claustral species. They are more polygyne the further toward the equator they are. They like cool temperatures around 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Check up on them after two weeks (they should have laid eggs about now)...

Re: Mass queen identification

The first one looks like Prenolepis imparis. Not sure about the rest.
