Re: Advice for Species and housing ideas for a future new colony owner?

See i find it very odd I found her too. Honestly curious as to what the heck she was up to. If she is indeed what I think she is, there is no reason for her to be up, out, and active right now. Doubt shes mated though, but I'm still hanging on to her till at least it gets warm enough to let her go.

Re: Advice for Species and housing ideas for a future new colony owner?

Awesome, thank you for all advice antnest. Honestly I don't know of any good spots to look for/find a winter ant colony outside. I'll have to start looking.

ID and possible thoughts on where from or what she was up to?

Hey there AC community! First things first. I live in the cities portion of Minnesota. Its 12 degrees fahrenheit right now, was snowing yesterday, and probably will be today as well.

Re: When are the Ant Towers coming out?

Is the large still hitting snags, or is it looking good for a release of q1 this year? Thinking about getting an ant tower small soon. But If the large is going to be released soon, I'd rather get that instead. We've reviewed some samples recently and there are just a few minor changes that need to...

Re: Advice for Species and housing ideas for a future new colony owner?

I do like the idea of bigger/easier to see them. Plus like I said, I'm fairly confident I can find a queen this upcoming flight.
