Re: Oecophylla smaragdina got raided

Insect killing chalk is a very powerful weapon that works at stopping ant raids. You will have to place it around your ant's nest, make sure your ants do not step on it.

Ants should be able to eat sugar cubes but maybe not the full thing.

She looks like a camponotus sp. or a polyrhachis sp. (Perhaps a gold ant).

Re: Do ant workers change colour?

It is possible their exoskeleton has not fully hardened you will just have to be careful. The ants that are in the pile are just probably having power naps.

Re: Do ant workers change colour?

Perhaps they will turn black later on or that is just their color. There mite of be something that happend to do this but it does not mater because they will live on and they do not care about their color. All ants make a sematary for their dead sisters.
