Pogonomyrmex Rugosus Diet??

Hey all, I have a beautiful Pogo. Rugosus Queen and have a few questions about what exactly I should be feeding her. I know from my research that they mostly consume seeds (hence the name Harvester Ants), and consume some dead insects on the side. What I'm wondering is, what type of seeds should I f...

Re: A Tale of Two Nanitics

Without knowing what type of formicarium you had them in, or other basic info, it's really hard for us to tell why your colony was struggling before. To me, it sounds like simple neglect. Never put your ants in a freezer, and never leave a "honey swamp" in their enclosure. It's possible the new encl...

Re: 4 queens caught in ABQ, New Mexico

thanks for the confirmation and extra tips! I have her in a test tube and noticed she was already chewing the cotton ball like crazy (like you said)... I'm going to set up my AC tower for her instead. I did put a piece of a cockroach in there for her to hopefully eat but she almost seemed to have an...

Re: PICTURES included - please help me ID <3

After some research, I'm starting to think it could be a rough harvester ant AKA Pogonomyrmex Rugosus. But I am an ant noob and am not sure. If anyone who knows more than me could help confirm, that would be so helpful! I want to make sure I feed her the correct diet and provide habitation for her s...

Re: 4 queens caught in ABQ, New Mexico

Hi! I just caught a queen in ABQ (I think its a queen), and I think it looks similar to your first pic, but because you only have one angle of it here, it's kind of hard for me to know for sure. Tell me what you think... I'm trying to ID them but am not sure at all what it is. https://i.imgur.com/Qi...

Re: Ant Queens Found In Arizona, Help

Your image link does not work, therefor we cannot help you ID.

If you're using imgur, please use the 'BBCode (Forums)' share link. For some reason on imgur, the standard 'share link' does not work.
