Many Crematogaster spp. live at ground level. Some African species build big cartonous nests in the trees, a little like wasps/termites. I wouldn't know how they go about doing this, but I would guess that sand/fiber and aphid secretions play a role.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
