Re: queens first eggs lost in test tube transfer

Hello dagan87 ! I am not an expert in ant keeping since I just recently caught my first queen ants, but I think you don't have to worry. A queen ant produces eggs frequently, so if by any way she lost her eggs she should start laying other eggs shortly. I think my first Lasius niger queen ate her fi...

Re: What a wonderful night... 3 new queen ants !

Hi LasiusSapien, thank you for your reply. I checked some photographs of the species Lasius flavus - I didn't find Lasius flava -, and although the size seems to correspond, I have a doubt about her abdomen. My ant queens have a funnel-shaped body before the gastor, contrary to the photos I found. H...

Re: My new and first queen ant !

And don't worry, I am too concerned about the well-being of my ants that I am too afraid to disturb them XD Here are some photos of where I keep them ;) https://i.postim...

My new and first queen ant !

Hello everyone ! I recently acquired a queen ant found completely by chance in my car - I don't know how she get here... She lost her wings right in front of my amazed eyes, so I quickly captured her into a small box and prepared a test tube, in which she is now resting peacefully into the dark. I w...
