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...

Re: I'm at a loss on this ant.

My guess would be Pseudomyrmex gracilis queen. I could be wrong though on if it is a queen or worker.

Re: Night queen swarm SW Florida

This is Camponotus sexguttatus, an introduced arboreal species quickly establishing itself in southern and central portions of the state. This looks oddly familiar to my queens also caught in south Florida, also swarming at night, also 9 mm, and also camponotus. How do I take care of arboreal? Here...

Re: South African Ant Queen(s) - Need help identifying

Definitely Pheidole. I recently caught a wild colony, but I caught around 11 queens (2 were injured, so 9 left) and that was just some of them. It was perfect because they were under a wooden slab so all I had to do was pick up the slab and then sweep them in. I did this once like 4 days ago, and a ...

Ok cool, sorry I didn't mention this before but the tanks I saw there were a decent size, not big.
Yea, like maybe a square foot? something that big would be perfect.

Plastic Aquarium Tanks

So I figured I could get an aquarium tank for an outworld, but I can't seem to find a NORMAL aquarium tank that is plastic. With glass, I cant drill into. So does anybody know where I can find a plastic one without holes in the top?

Re: Please Help ID 3 Different Queens

The first imaged queen is Camponotus nearcticus, I'm fairly sure. The other two are going to need additional pictures -- they may not be detailed enough to pin an ID. Camponotus diversity is pretty high in that region, and there may be some nonnative species from the Caribbean. Ok, I will get some ...
