Re: Central Texas - late March

I am in southeast Texas and was having some of that very same magic mid march. Big girl does look like a Solenopsis invicta the smaller one is probably a male, but the head looks too big compared to the ones I have around here. Don't let the wings = unfertilized myth fool you. Its generally true, bu...

Re: Feeding Pachycondyla Queen

I thought most people were feeding pre-killed rather than live.....
The rolly was because i read some Pachy's were isopod specialists.

I threw in the smallest superworm I had, she showed no interest and it just crawled away from her. :roll:

Feeding Pachycondyla Queen

I made the following setup for my Pachycondyla . She seems happy and has lost her wings. I included a test tube/water setup covered to be dark. Soil and a rock to hid under.

Pachycondyla harpax Bellaire TX 3/25/20

Beautiful girl, BIG Girl. Every bit of 12 mm. Pretty sure she is a Pachycondyla but please correct me. I am assuming being from Texas would make her a harpax but that is mostly a guess. It was a very windy day and she flew through the parked car window and hit me right in the chest. My girls and I t...

Re: Pseudomyrmex gracilis

I did have the formicarium attached to the out-world, however I removed it to cover it and to create some distance between the formicarium and the outworld. I could reattach it but that does not give them much room to move around. Like Antman said, they are a species that needs a lot of space. Where...

Pseudomyrmex gracilis

I have an established colony of Psudomyrmex gracilis . They are currently residing in an omninest and nesting in the outworld. I would really like them to relocate into the formicarium portion, at least so I can clean their outworld. Any suggestions? http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e134/Tethiner/2...

My wife informed me I am not a time traveler.
It was May 15th. Just this last Tuesday. I am not sure how to edit the title.
