Heating?

Hey, I’m planning on joining this hobby, and I am going to have to keep my ants inside...with AC. You see, I live in Arizona and the ants here are obviously...uhhh...used to the heat you could say.

Re: What kind of ant do you think this is?

She was about 5mm long. I’ve attached the best quality pictures I could take of her. She was very activ...
