Re: My queen ant died and 50 workers are still alive what happen next?

Yeah, without the queen they aren't able to produce any more workers and the colony will just die out. I would suggest releasing them otherwise you can just wait until they all die out. Sorry for your loss :(

Re: So apparently i own some ants

Re: Jumping jack?

Rhytidoponera sp. Would need better photo to identify species and whether it's a queen or a worker.

Re: Sparkly black ant, 1 cm?

Looks like Rhytidoponera sp. to me. Would need a better pic. Most likely R. metallica due to the 'shiny' description.

Crematogaster sp. looks like.
Thank you, I looked for crematogaster on google and yeah, it's a Crematogaster cerasi, Thank you so much, BTW I found it in Pernambuco-Brazil.
Probably wouldn't be wise to assume the species. It definitely looks like Crematogaster sp. however.
