Re: Can Vaseline kill nanitics?

Re: ID BRAZIL

Hey Medeiros, I live in Brazil too, São Paulo (interior). I don't know too much about Acromyrmex, but they're easy to find in our country. These ants could be Ectatomma species too, I have one Ectatomma sp. queen and they are similar. Google photos about this genre and tell us what you think.
