I've been tryin to find Camponotus queens here in Houston (the suburbs). All I can find is RIFA. Any tips on Camponotus queens in my location?
Try looking in parks, or forested areas?

So I was wondering about using the small frozen bloodworms you feed fish as a protein source for my ants?
If you don't know they're like mosquito larvae.
You might need to rehydrate them first

Thanks hawkeye. To all the keepers of pennslyanicus, what size test tubes do you use if you do? I am most likely going to order some 20mm diameter 150mm length, but I was wondering if that is too small, as they are quite large?
Those are fine

I'm happy to say that my C. us-ca02 has got it's first nanitic. I'll be posting pictures on journal soon.

Re: Campo pennsylvanicus feeding help

Hi everybody I’m new to the crew and I am excited to share my progress of my first ant colony. I have a question about feeding. What is a good feeding schedule.

The ants might actually hunt them, or try to chase them away if they find them a nuisance, but they're actually a benefica...
