Re: Misidentified? NJ, 5/20, 11mm

Most likely a darker Camponotus subbarbatus . That condensation looks problematic. Is it because you are heating the tubes? Hey, thanks. I've fixed the condensation problem. Yes, I'm heating the tubes with a heating cord, but this one was a mistake. The cord was propped up with a pen to go over thi...

Misidentified? NJ, 5/20, 11mm

Hey guys, I think i misidentified one of my ants. She was one of my earlier catches, and now she has workers. I previously believed her to be Tetramorium Immigrans, but her workers are HUGE compared to the other T. Immigrans workers i have. I think she may be Camponotus Nearcticus. Location: NJ, USA...

Re: C. Pennsylvanicus Journal, My first

awesome terrarium. do you have sugar water test tubes? In my experience camponotus love sugar water. Hey, thanks! I'm in the middle of experimenting with mixtures, and crafting dispensers. My first dispenser didn't work out so well. That is the plan though. I know ill end up buying an official one,...

Re: C. Pennsylvanicus Journal, My first

This is the earliest picture i have of her. I didnt discover this forum until 2 months after finding my first queens. I started taking pictures to have them identified. Freddie Mercury is in the orange tube, and she has a fan! The blue tube is Queen Elizabeth the 7th, she is my other C. Penn colony ...

Re: C. Pennsylvanicus Journal, My first

I felt like i knew the stages by heart. Capture to tube, eggs, then workers. After workers, outworld, after too many workers, nest and outworld, then many outworlds. I had many ideas i wanted to do, from crafting my own, to buying setups. But first i needed to outfit Freddie. I looked into the types...

Re: Great new outworld!

UPDATE So i moved my Camponotus pennsylvanicus into this as an outworld. Ive also made a few others for my other ants that needed outworlds. So far so good id say. So i drilled some holes in the top and added cotton for air http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f190/Jackthetoker/20180720_1821021.jpg The...
