Re: Favorite foods for Camponotus?

They accept most protein sources, but as for preferences they love sugars and anything sweat, but can be nocturnal and not very active until you have around 20 workers but don't worry they just not the most active species for the first workers.

Re: Lasius Niger UK nuptial flight.

After the rain yesterday all my nearby Lasius Flavus colonies have dug to the surface and made large entrances, I'm expecting an imminent nuptial flight!
