Hydration

Hello, I was wondering what you guys have been putting in the hydration system to soak up the water, I tried putting paper towels and cloth but unfortunately that got moldy very fast.

Re: Ant queen collecting

Thanks for the reply, I tried this and found a queen this morning! However I also tried looking for queens just when the sun sets near lamp posts and found 3 queens in one spot, all fertilized, it was raining that day so I'm guessing that also had something to do with me finding those 3 queens.

Ant queen collecting

Hey! I have a question, what time of day should I go searching for ant queens?
for the last month I've been searching for 1 to 2 hours a day for ant queens at different times of the day and never found one, must I wake up early in the morning, or go on an expedition at night?

I saw a beautiful very large queen fly all the way to the fourth floor of my building, straight into my apartment, without further research I concluded that she wasn't fertile since she was flying, but recently I read that queens only shed their wings after they found a...

ID-ing gender

Hello, I recently found an ant with wings, I was hoping someone could help me whether this is a queen that didn't lose wings or an unfertilized one or a male ant, I tried putting it on top of my finger to make it fly but it did not, when I put it in a testube it did nothing. I apologize for the bad ...

Relocated queen diet

Hello, I used to have a colony of 5 workers and a queen that were in an AntsCanada hybrid nest mini, however every worker died and only the queen remained, I relocated her back to a testube 4 weeks ago, I was wondering if I needed to provide her with protein and/or sweets?

Re: Ants not doing anything

It truly did cost a lot unfortunately, and I think that light is bothering them, I have 2 colonies, the one discussed on this post and another one in an AntsCanada hybrid nest mini, the ones in the hybrid nest mini are newer but there are a lot more of them and they are more active while the ones in...

Queen ant keeping her wings

Hello, 2 days ago I've caught a queen ant with wings, I've found her walking on the floor outside so I assumed that she's fertilized, I tried putting her on the top of my fingers to she if she'll fly and she did not, I've put her in a test tube. Am I right to assume that she's fertilized?
