Check out my new Yellow crazy ants colony

Check out my new Yellow crazy ants colony, with more than 100 queens, wish I could add more queens to the colony so it may reaches to 500 or 1000 queens one day. I call it SUPER GOLDEN EMPIRE!!! YCA is very beautiful ants but don`t be confused by it`s looks, they could be very aggressive when against other ant species. I often saw they prey on S. geminata and even army ants, even S. invicta can`t stand a chance with YCA in small conflict.

100 queens?! That's amazing! Did you catch the colony from the wild? And when you found them, did they have 100 queens? How quickly does the colony grow?

That's amazing. They must be very accepting of new colonies then.

Yes, even queens of YCA come from different province could mix together and will not fight each other.
