Re: Pheidole Sp. Habitat

Now I am no expert but I suggest when moving them in to moisten the red sand so they can dig true it and not have the tunnels collapse.
But I am sure the ants will enjoy the setup.

Do Messor barbarus ants see red light?

Hello guys.

I have heard that some ants do and some don't see the color red.
Does anyone know if I can cover my Messor barbarus nest with a red foil so I can always see them without stressing them out?
