Re: multiple question

Heat cables with Omni Nests: Most people place the heat cable along one side of the Omni Nest, which allows for a heat gradient in the nest.

Re: ooper's Camponotus modoc colony (#2)

How are they doing? Unfortunately, this colony did not survive. I have another C. modoc colony that I started a few months back.

Re: Messor Barbarus Info

Note that it may take them several days, even weeks, before they will move in. Just be patient ;) They actually did it in 4 hours haha The queen was the last one to move but the ants were forcing her to move to the hybrid nest.

Re: Omni Nest and Heating Cable
