The colony has grown to 3 workers, 1 gigantic larva, two normal sized larvae, and six smaller larvae. At this point, brood development has stopped for me as Australia heads into winter, and wil...

Re: Forelius pruinosis Journal(my dream species)

I just peeked in at my queen.

(it could be my LEDs are...

Stigmatomma sp. can if you haven't watched the latest AntsCanada video. I have also tried it successfully with Solenopsis molesta and Ponera pennsylvanica, but those don't live in Singapore.
