Re: What should I move my new ant colony into?

They are still in a test tube (5 workers) and are believed to be tetramorium. What I meant is, after the colony has 20 to 30 workers do I move them into an outworld first or a hybrid nest first?

Re: need advice on how to move a queen out of a test tube.

Thanks, I thought so but I was very worried to try the tape in case the ant got stuck to it somehow

need advice on how to move a queen out of a test tube.

The test tube setup is filled with an unsafe amount of mold. How do I safely move the queen and her brood?

Help unsafe amount of mold in testube

What is the best and safest way to transfer this queen and her brood? About 80-90% of the cotton is covered in mold.

Re: Help ID-ing 7 specimens

I think the first two might be a Pogonomyrmex ant species they have the psammophores (ant beards). batspiderfish is the expert though so take his word over mine.

Re: Florida Ant Queen Identification

Give the first three food they don't look claustral the gaster is very thin. Do not put too much food see if they eat it.

Re: Is this a queen? If so what type? - Northern Nevada

Camponotus sansabeanus/Camponotus semitestaceus that's my best guess. That camera is very good I wish I had one.
