Hi I am from Parker Colorado and have a colony of Pseudomyrmex pallidus. I know quite a bit about them. they were collected in the sand dunes and mate in captivity. i would like to know if they can live in an omni nest or if they require twigs.

you said they lived in sand dunes, an omni nest should be fine, but add a small layer on sand to the floor of the nest, it should give them some comfort.
founding queens:
x2 componotus consobrinus
x1 iridimrmex bicknelli
x5+ Linepithema humile
x1 unknown queen (either phiodole or camponotus)

tried this, but they only lived in twigs so they are in a specialized setup.
