Re: My ants want to move to the wrong place!

What species?

Re: My ants want to move to the wrong place!

Yesterday I finally move my ants to their new ant nest, but, there were some major porblems after moving them; 1.-Some ants were dying very fast (But I think I solve it) 2.- Now, they're moving to the wrong side of the nest :/ https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UyufscC_qbh8sYbpiSJ1T4xrb-7nyos2/view?u...

Re: Queen sisters

That is great!! This is like a 70 chance they are mated… unless they were bathed in sand. I don't think they can be drenched in sand, here where I live the ground gets very hard and the only places where there is sand are on the beaches.It also doesn't look very dirty If they were drench in sand, i...

Re: Queen sisters

Out of experience there is a few possibility’s that could happen 1) They are southern fire ants, which are usually not polygynoes and the workers will eliminate all queens until one remains(S.
