It's important to have new tube option and if they feel the need they will move but, be very very patient. Best to have clean t...

Re: Crematogaster Scutellaris update

Do crematogaster Scutellaris like tight space? Thinking I need to create a smaller space for her to start laying again. She laid many in small tube. Now living area is bigger and she hasn't laid in a while. I can connect the size she liked.

It's best to have a bunch of AC test tubes on hand they are better for long term use. I got test tubes from the **** and they are too s...
