When a Camponotus queen gets her first nanitic, you feed them a week after right?
You could try it sooner but most of the time the won't except food until a week.
I feed mine once I get a few nantics or the queen looks really thin

It could be Formica sp. , but they are quite jumpy and active. Both are fully claustral so you should refrain from feeding her until she ...

Re: Dream Ant Colony

THEY DO! I MUST CATCH ONE! I thought he had S. Gemineta. I don’t watch anymore so if it is recent I wouldn’t know.

Re: Aphaenogaster Help.

I have a Aphaenogaster rudis colony with three workers in a THA mini hearth. The question I have is how should I feed them a sugar source that the workers can take back to the nest, so that the queen does not have to come up? Also, do all Apaenogaster ants lack a social stomachs or just rudis? Most...
