Re: Emergency!

I live in the tropics, so I don’t hibernate ants. One thing I do when there is no water left is I just wet the cotton ball on the end just a tad. Not to much because then air can’t fill in I think. Of course this is temporary so I suppose if you were to do this you would have to do often.

I've been looking for 1 or 2 queens of cyphomyrmex rimosus for a while, and a printed colobopsis. But whatever is possible, I accept it.

Thanks in advance.
I have a colobopsis. I haven’t signed up for GAN yet but I hope to soon. If you are interested please reply.

Re: Help!!!

You can leave a surplus of food and a test tube full of water, that would work. The ants wouldn't "overeat" to the point of death, although I do think they will eat a lot in order to have reserves. I've done it with mine. Just make sure they have enough water, that is the most important thing. I hav...
