Soil setup for founding?

Would I be able to house a Camponotus Pennsylvanicus in a jar full of dirt? If I were to spray it every few days to keep it looking moist would that be a working setup? I want to try something new, possibly give the ant a more natural setup, and also ran out of test tubes.

Re: How many Queens in one test tube

Are they polygynous? If so as many as can comfortably fit.

How many Tetramorium Immigrans Workers?

I have a Tetramorium Immigrans queen with currently 7 workers. Since they’re a smaller species I know that 20 workers might be a few two few to succeed in a hybrid nest and outworld, but would 30 workers be sufficient?

Valve Connecter Female Tubing Size?

What type of tubing comes with the hybrid nest?

It’s in the name. I’m wondering if it’s large tubing, in which case I won’t need to buy more tubing to attach a T piece. Also is large tubing the one that connects to female valve connectors? Thanks.

How would this setup work?

My goal is to have a setup where I have a hybrid nest with a valve connection connecting to a constricted adapter connected to water tube, having the tubing that comes with the hybrid nest attaching to the outworld (cut in half of course so there are two exits to the outworld), one of which has a T ...

Re: Idle Tetramorium Colony

Usually they would at least makes moves toward the exit if they’re hungry is what I’ve heard. I doubt they realize how big their space is if they haven’t left the tube. I’m sure that if they’re really hungry they’ll find what they’re looking for.

Re: Idle Tetramorium Colony

Hmm... Maybe I could add cotton to “reduce space”. I put a bit of beetle on the cotton ramp to their tube. Hopefully that entices them out and they notice the other beetle bit and honey.

Re: How often can you check on a worker colony?

Yeah, they kind of exploded in population over a few days. I made a post in ant keeping for beginners with some other questions if you have some time and feel like helping.
