Re: Stigmatoma pallipes care help

Re: AAU's Journals

I guess I haven't been updating my journals as I planned to. For now, all I can say is the most important change (what I care about) is that I now have 2 Stigmatomma pallipes colonies. I recently made a video showing off a feeding.

Ponera pennsylvanica: I have been attempting keeping Ponera pennsylvanica over several years. This year I have 6 queen all with eggs, a pile of 8 eggs being the most. I also caught a small colony of 5 queens and some workers. https://i.imgur.com/qeK0l3p.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Hmb3Squ.jpg Aphaenoga...
