Re: general talk about our colonies

This string is Awesome! I just dove into ant keeping this year. I was lucky enough to catch 2 Queens. One Liometopum Occidentale (velvety tree ants) and some sort of Tetramorium. Both are totally thriving! My lio queen has just nursed her first batch of about 23 pupa into awesome little nanatics! My...

Re: Noob Needs Help with Camponotus...

Honestly your new setup looks great compared to the previous one. I think for best possible results the external factors really need to be dialed in.

Re: Help Help! When do I do my first feeding!?

Re: I need help to start an ant farm

A good clean test tube is super important for the start of the colony! I personally also had ton of trouble finding test tubes to buy in the beginning.. The internet is definitely the place to go. I of course caught my Queen's before I had a glass test tube tho. A good temporary or starter tube is t...

Re: Trash in the testube

Wow that is a very blurry pic! Try and set the phone on a surface near the test tube and take a really steady pic! Also you can put your cam in sports mode to have a faster shutter speed. I'm no "experianced" ant keeper but I know from AC that their "trash" needs to be cleaned before it molds or goe...
