Re: Tetraponera rufonigra care assistance required.

What would be normal behavior for a Tetraponera rufonigra dealate in a out world? Because mine rarely walks on the ground and mostly on the sides or the roof if she could. I have applied a DIY flueon barrier on the roof so I can have breathing holes for her, but now she keeps running around on the ...

Re: Dream Ant Colony

It was quite some time ago when he first had that colony. Recentl...

Re: Pheidole is so hard to keep!

I usually avoid Diacamma, but they are so common in my area that I end up stepping on them or their nest by accident and get stung. While we're on the topic of Diacamma, is there any way to spot a gamergate between the workers. And what will happen if you take a male ant from one colony, and take a...
