Re: Any Set good for Ghost Ant

Ghost ants (Tapinoma melanocephalum) are small ants and are escape artists so keeping them can be quite challenging. I suggest you to look for formicariums that are tight so they don't escape. Maybe something like the hybrid nest mini, Solenopsis or Tetramorium if you can afford it.

Re: How to care for Carebara Diversa (Asian Marauder Ants)

1. They'll eat just about anything. 2. It depends, but most of them fly from November to December and May to July, they'll even fly year round sometimes. 3. Extremely fast, queens can have up to 30-50 nanitics. 4. Yes 5. I'll say slightly high humidity, about 60-80%. Just make sure the nest is humid...

Re: Why Camponotus is a complex genus

I had to correct it since a word is banned. Camponotus bedoti has phragmotic majors but they are not placed in the genus Colobopsis because they have coccooned pupae while Colobopsis has pupae without coccoons.
