Hi all.
I'm about to start a journal of a Argentine ant colony I caught. I was wondering if anyone has ever kept them.
There are 5 or so queens, 100 worker and some brood.

There are some people on formiculture keeping them but generally they're a bit of a pain. They need constant access to water (and will consume tons), are tiny enough to challenge most setups by squeezing through any gap and generally don't do too well in captivity, often dying off for no apparent reason.
