Re: Moving fire ant colony from dirt jar into AC hybrid nest

Just be patient and don't water the jar, and make sure the Hybrid Nest is warm and moist.

Re: New to Ant Keeping in DC

Correction it looks like in your area there are some colonies that are rather large right now going for 100$ 150$ and 300$ pretty pricy in my book :roll:. I would suggest you try to catch as many queens as possible otherwise you might end up spending more than your whole setup.

Re: New to Ant Keeping in DC

I live in SC, so I only have an answer for the last question. Normally starter colonies are anywhere from 20$ to 60$ depending on how rare the species is.

Good Luck, and Ant Love Forever!

Re: Need advice before purchasing

crickets and mealworms and honey. every 2-4 days is a feeding I always give my ants a lot of honey for energy. When the first ants arrive and start pulling on the cotton. I recommend getting the AC test tube portal for this. I don't recommend a sugar block. ;)

Good Luck!
