Re: Substrate

if you have it, a mix of coco peat soil, sand and bits of tiny sticks would be good

Hi,
I have 2 Solenopsis invicta queens that I want to sell once we get workers but I want to know if I can get to keep my test tube since I have a colony that I am keeping and need test tubes for water and sugar water?
just use the money you get to buy more

Re: Multiple Queens Housed Together

It really doesn't matter, even if they do eat some of the brood, they can just use that energy to make more, if you are really worried that they arent laying eggs, you can give them a very small drop of honey

Re: Ant Queen Identification Help

The pictures are a bit blurry so I can't tell but are the antennae curved or do they have an edge, if they're curved then they're male

Re: Our Queen is Infertile...now what?

just freeze them as a humane way to kill them, then you can safely throw them out

I'd say a type of Camponotus. Not sure which type though.
i doubt it, it looks more like formica, or maybee lasius, but it looks nothing like a campo
