Re: My Colony So Far From July 14th to August 5th

Congrats! Just make sure when they reach about 7-10 ants to connect them to an out-world set up :D No doubt my friend I'm definitely going to give them more time to grow before I move them ! Thank you! I know that even though there's workers I should still leave them alone relatively but does it so...

Caught 13 queens tonight in Fort Mohave.
Do you know what species they were ? I'm also in Arizona and am glad to hear you had so much luck! I'm hoping I will have the same luck as well.

Temperatures are starting to rise, so I was wondering if people have started seeing any nuptial flights or queens
Ive seen quite a couple nuptial flights happening and I recently caught a Dorymyrmex Insanus queen. Has anybody else had any luck queen hunting?

I caught her on July 14th of this year. When I had caught her she was still mating and hadn't shed her wings but she...

Tucson Arizona and hibernation

I have been wondering lately how I should go about hybernating my ants. Sense I come from the desert what temperatures would be too cold for an ant colony? Does anyone have any tips or suggestions as to how I should store them? Oh and what happens to the not fully developed eggs do they die off ? Or...

Re: Which hybrid nest would be best?

I read somewhere that the dorymyrmex insanus species thrives in dry and hot environments do you think a camponotus or pogonomyrmex nest would be okay for such a small species?
