Re: Tetramorium omni nest question

Yea you can give them a bit,that works.

Re: Tetramorium omni nest question

Re: Buying Camponotus Pen

I am not selling as in giving my address or contact, I am only throwing out the question of who have extra camponotus and have not had the time to post it on GAN project site yet. Because we are busy people and last I check there was no "request an ant" button on the site. Also there are very limit ...
