Re: PLZ HELP ID QUEEN IN PERTH AUSTRALIA!!!!

Rhytidoponera metallica. This is a semi-claustral species so will need feeding. If you want tips on that I believe the youtube account "Ants Invasion" actually has a guide showing these species.

Do ant eggs hatch in winter season? (Australia)

Ive got 9 queens and they have laid eggs. The eggs haven't hached and its been like 3 months already! I was wondering if its because it is winter here in Australia (WA) and they dont hatch in winter. My queens do seem to be slowing down. The species is Iridomyrmex. Bicknelli. Thnx for the help!

Why arent my queen ant eggs hatching? NEED REPLY SOON

I've had 9 Iridomyrmex Bicknelli (they're australian ants) queen ants for about 7 weeks now since they laid eggs. I dont know why but none of them have even hatched into larvae yet!
