Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

Happy Birthday🎂🎂🎂🎈🎈 Thanks. But I also have a big problem with the colony, their founding test tube (the one that I use to raise the queen in) is very dirty and they still don't want to move out of it, currently it only has one larva, one pupa and lots of workers. The good thing is the queen is not...

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

Are too many springtails in an ant tank harmful for my ants? (Apologize if it is a stupid question, I never seen thousands of springtails in an ant tank before) No they're not. The ants might actually hunt them, or try to chase them away if they find them a nuisance, but they're actually a benefica...

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

This might be one of the saddest updates here, when i came to check on my colony of Pheidolegeton diversus colony a few days back, i saw the queen had died :cry: . The workers also seem to be dismantling the queen into pieces to feed the brood, officially i have lost this colony... :cry: :(
