Re: One Queen dead. Can I merge with other founding colony?

nope they will fight, what you could do is chill the ants in a fridge for 4 minutes then carefully take out the dead queen and her workers, you can release the workers into the wild. now it should only be the brood left. put the test tube with the brood next the live queened colony's in an outworld....

My ants escaped!

So over night my small lepisiota colony escaped. I think they are nesting under something in my room.
How should I get them back when I find them?

If it helps they had completely vanished from their setup overnight.

Re: URGENT:PARATRECHINA LONGHICORNUS COLONY DYING?

Does there nest setup resemble their environment in which you found them?
Maybe you could make a terrarium for them to live in.
