Re: is my camponotus queen dead?

If you put her on a leaf in the outworld id say the worker is trying to lead her back home. She'll clean herself along with the her workers.

2 queens vs 1 queen colonies. Friend or foe?

I have caught a wild colony of Lasius neoniger. With multiple queens. And a second colony with a single queen. Any chance i could join these colonies or will they fight? And if so how?

Re: UK ants

Yellow crazy ants can clone themselves i hear. Aside from catching a wild colony pretty sure all ants have nuptial flights

Re: Queens id plz

The last queen is a Solenopsis invicta i think. I managed to catch the second queen from the wild pheidole colony yesterday.

Re: First year Camponotus formicarium

my first outworld for a fledgling colony is an AC test tube portal. the outworld doesn't need to be big at that stage and i find the removable plugs make putting in food items a breeze while keeping the ants inside
