Re: I got two queen ants!! What type are they?

I am pretty sure both are Iridomyrmex Sp. Congratulations on catching your queens!

Re: Jadeninja9's Camponotus hyatti Journal

Wow... with that amount of brood I would think they went at least one winter before you got them. Congratulations on such a great colony!

Amazing! Do you know if this colony was purchased in it's first year or after hibernation?

Re: 15W Heat Cable Touching other Cords

I would recommend that you wrap the cord with foil in the areas where the heat isn't needed to be safe.

Re: New family not eating

Some species may eat while you aren't looking, as they can be nocturnal. Depending on where you live, they may already be preparing for hibernation. Just make sure they have a constant supply of food, and when there seems to be no more brood, put them into hibernation as Formica does not overwinter ...

Keep them where they are. Feed the queen a bit of sugar (soaked cotton balls) and protein. Then, if the larvae don't pupate within a month put them into hibernation. Good luck!
