Re: Caught an ant alate, new to ant keeping

Try buy some kind of science kit as they usually have test tubes inside. And after that, just do the water and the cotton thing that AC shows you like all the time. However, catching it may be hard as it has wings... so maybe just put the tube inside the box until the alate finds it.

Re: Ants Blocking Off Water Test Tubes with Soil

Maybe they are building tunnels and putting the dirt in the test tube...

However, there is just one exception. The queens will NOT kill each other until the worker ants will come out. Its quality of one nest over quantity of ant nests.

Re: My bull ant queen not nesting

Have you tried alive insects? Most bull ant queens are semi-claustral and they require going out of the nest to hunt food.

Re: Carpenter ant colony stopped growing

Maybe look for mites that could be in the test tube or try giving the some drops of honey. Also, not that the lockdown is easing, you can buy jelly cups in abundance.
