Oregon Queen, Very Fast

This queen was found on August 6th, 2018. I found her as I was leaving work that day and luckily I had a test tube as always. She was incredibly fast and super hard to catch. She is around .5 inches or so with a super big gaster that seemed to have a silvery shine to it froma certain angle, as you c...

Re: Ants Making Wall of Trash in Connecting Tube

Nice! Noted for future instances of this, heard it helped to have a digging medium with this species. Now if only I could find a queen. I've heard they have explosive growth, I'll have to try again next year. :cry: Really?! I have yet to see any super explosive growth. I started with about 20 worke...

Checking in on this, curious if the situation has changed. They still in their test tube and garbage still in the connecting tube?

Yeah, so I filled the first two squares with dirt and the ants emptied it all out besides the first square and moved in.

Ants Escaping Vertical Omninest

I have a small Omni Nest Vertical. My tetramorium colony finally moved in, however, in the course of 8 hours, I discovered 2 ants outside the nest voyaging around on my dresser. I would imagine that other ants have gotten out as well, but I just didn't see them. Are there holes in the nest that peop...
