Re: Problem with my Hybrid Nest

Hi Ooper! I just came back to the forum after a few years and I'm excited to see that it is busy as ever! I also see there are a fair share of phony posts/advertisements. Sorry you guys have to deal with that. Has it steadily gotten more prominent or is this a sudden influx?

Re: Request for identification

:? Feeding them will only increase the population. If you want them to go away but not kill them, I think the best you can do is keep the area clean and seal any holes they might be coming in from.

Most of the chambers with water-access are just hydration pits - meaning the ants didn't have access to the chamber. The water would soak into the plaster and incr...
