Meat Ant

Post: # 31023Post bulldog72

G'day from Sydney Australia.

I have recently purchased a meat ant (Iridomyrmex purpureus) queen which will be arriving in the near future.

I will require a decent sized formicarium to house her in for when her colony grows.

Can someone advise which formicarium from the AntsCanada shop would be suitable. The species does not show up on the list.

Many thanks in advance.

G'day,

I'd suggest a Formica, or maybe even a Lasius. Shouldn't make too much of a difference.
