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.

Re: Migrating Queen

I appreciate the help, and the education. "minor Queen" was poor terminology. What I meant was exactly what antnest8 said. I put her in a test tube and left her alone. I was worried that if she was from an established colony she may have exhausted her wing muscles and would need food. I put a small ...

Strange Death

I just lost two Sol. Inv. Queens in their test tubes. 1 kinda makes sense. it appears she somehow got entangled in the cotton. I am not sure how that happened but I could not get her corpse physically separated out of the cotton. The second bothers me. I rescued a queen (with wings) from my pool. Sh...

Migrating Queen

We have been getting a lot of rain here and all the Sol. Inv. are moving nests from flooded areas. An entire field of nests re-located from a to across the street. Approximately 20-30 nests....guessing an average of 1000 ants each. 20,000+ ants on the move. All headed in the same direction! Uphill a...

Spring, Tx

Greetings all! Me and my girls have been watching AntsCanada for awhile. They finally convinced me to jump in. Unfortunately, I am right in the center of RIFA. Every park, tree and Bush is under invicta occupation. Anyone else like this? I made the rule with them that we would not buy a queen. Sugge...
