Re: ID comfirmation

I caught one this year and after I put her in a founding formicarium rather than a test tube, she calmed down and immediately laid eggs.

Re: How often do you feed a "semi claustral" queen?

I assume you plan on leaving the test tube in the area. They will need housing of some sort of you don't. Looks cool to me though.

Re: Solenopsis Richteri

I'll post a larger picture of the entire setup when I can. It's not just a test tube it's a test tube portal from AntsCanada.

I also installed a sugar water tube rather than using honey for sugar.

Re: Help with ant Identification Please.

You'll probably need a better picture and a metric measurement. A general location found would be nice too.

I don't think that's an acrobat ant if it is ~1 inch. That's probably a Camponotus or Formica if it is that size.

Re: Solenopsis Richteri

The link should work now. Sorry about that.

Also I'm trying tuna rather than meal worms to see if that changes anything.

Re: Camponotus Formicarium

Guess I forgot to share the file. It should be shared now.

Re: Camponotus Formicarium

It's working. I have eggs!

Should I start feeding her yet?

If so, should I use honey or sugar water?

Are meal worms and tuna ok? I don't have crickets yet.
