Tetramroium caespitum to be exact. :)
Thanks I think you are right because their lifestyle meets with what I've observed and also the pictures seem to match, I've seen darker and lighter colored ones but not sure what that means, mine are rather on the light yellow side of the palette

Worker ID with microscope pictures? + few old of queen

Hey guys it's been a while but I've recently got my usb microscope or whatever and I thought I'll try to get and ID on one of my colony I have over a year and couldn't get it exactly classified yet. Sadly (or probably not for them) they live in a naturalistic habitat so I have no way getting new pic...

Re: My new Ytong formicarium + outword

It's been several months since I've made this and it has been a great success so far so I thought I'll post updated pictures to encourage others because I saw there are several threads on the topic. The left one houses formicas of some kind I've got this year, too few for photo shoots yet so they'll...

Re: where can I find ytong

You should look for alternatives, I can buy Ytong in 1 km from my home in EU but if you don't have supplier around I wouldn't order it from overseas because it's quite heavy and the shipping will cost a lot

Re: Would this work as a founding chamber?

looks good to me tho I wouldn't make a "founding chamber" as a test tube setup is often the most perfect living area for them until 10-20 workers, when you could instead 3d print a formicarium for them from the material you'd use here Look up my posts for my 3d formicarium and if you like it I can g...
