I recently found out that my "fire ant" isn't a fire ant lol she is a Crematogaster laeviuscula Queen we think. She has 6 workers and about 6-8 eggs about to changed in to workers and a huge mound of eggs of all sizes. What nest is recommended for her?

Crematogaster laeviuscula are a moisture-loving species, frequently found near a water source, in rotting logs or under bark. If you want to use a Hybrid Nest, the Myrmica nest would be a good choice. Also the Camponotus nest offers a good amount of hydration space.
