Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

I suggested that for their punishment they will have to buy a new colony and give a presentation of how an ant colony functions (and how to take care of one.) Tell them to watch some AC YouTube clips for research hahaha
:lol: Sounds like a great punishment and fair too.

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

Hey guys! How is everyone doing? Getting excited about diapauze almost being over? Sadly the colony of harvester ants we have at school is doomed to die out. One of the pupils removed the test tube which housed the colony. It was connected by a tube to an outworld which in turn connected to a formi...

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

Good luck ArizonaAnts! Hope you are successful in finding fertile queens! Same to everyone else on the hunt as well :) Good luck! Also, my Camponotus, Odontomachus and Formica queens are still kicking. Similar to Arizona Anta, these ladies (Morse so their workers) are gathering up protein for the Q...

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

Hi, to put you in context. I have a camponotus queen with 8 workers, but kinda forgot about them in november and didn't feed them + forgot to put them to colder area for winter. They've eaten some larvae, but overall seems fine. They just don't want to eat anything. I've gave them some honey, not i...

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

Im not :cry: sure but it might :cry: be lack of food. I gave them everything I can think of. But they didn't eat. So I guess its kind of their fault also. Some just don’t handle being captive very well. Just how it goes sometimes. Mine aren’t eating most of the protein I offer. I’ve been told after...

I have an inquiry have any of you tried giving your ants fish food? If so would it be a source of protein?

Thank you,

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

You know what it might be. It might be that it's a little more humid in the test tube making it the ideal safest place because it's away from any other entrances. I wouldn’t say your Formicarium is full or outgrown in my opinion anyway. What species of ant do you have in there? You may be right abo...
