Re: Tetramorium Journal

Hey can you post some new pictures? I've got a tetramorium colony started around the same time as yours, but mines only at like 14-16 workers with some brood. I've only been feeding them organic local honey, also their original test tube is getting moldy so yesterday I shed some light on them and g...

Re: Tetramorium Journal

They could be Pheidole, which are what mine probably were, explaining their polygyny. Did you mean they have multiple queens? (Sorry I'm not really familiar with the terminology). It's just one queen, and I'm almost certain it's tetramorium, you can check by clicking the link though, it's just a go...

Re: Tetramorium Journal

If I were you I would make sure their tube has a good amount of water in it (or move them to a new one if it doesn't) and hibernate them in the tube. That way you don't have to sorry about humidity and they won't soil your nest over the winter. Good advice! Yeah, for now, I don't think it's really ...

Re: Tetramorium Journal

Hey guys! Sorry about not posting more often, I've been busy with school. So, over the past few weeks I have been giving them plenty of protein in the form of cat food, spiders, and mealworms. I had been shining a flashlight into their test tube to see them (I have a cover around the test tube), and...

Re: Death by food

So my colony is a mere few months old with 8 workers and I somehow have lost one to... food. I put a small amount of food on some foil and a day later one appears to have gotten caught in it and died. How do they manage that?! Sorry this is really late... Some ants are pretty small and if the food ...

Did the tetremorium like the seeds?
Yea I think so, I crushed up some sesame and chia seeds and they brought in 2 sesames and one chia :D I heard they liked them so I gave it a shot and it worked out nicely.
