I always wanted to have solenopsis geminata but we don't have solenopsis sp. in south asia. :(
You can find many solenopsis colonies in south Asia.
Even I live in south Asia and I have solenopsis geminate colony.

Solenopsos Invectas are most abundant

There are some AntsCanada tutorials for brood bosting.

Re: How long can ants be left?

YOU SHOULD HIBERNATE THE COLONY IN TEST TUBE SETUP THAT IS BEST FOR THEM. FEED THEM A LOT OF HONEY AND GIVE THEM SOME INSECT FOOD. THEY CAN STAY FOR TWO WEEKS WITHOUT FOOD.
