Re: Ausants ants journal

Hi AusAnts,

Really cool to hear about your ant colonies :D

What kind of environment did you give your Strobe Ants?

Hopefully they are alive and doing well.

Strobe Ant Care

Hi there,
I live in Australia and I am considering purchasing a strobe ant (opisthopsis) queen. Does anybody have any tips or information on how to look after these awesome ants (e.g. humidity)?
Thanks :)

Re: Black/red Queen, caught in Victoria

Just to add a couple more details, I caught her on Tuesday, 14th of April. She has 2 visible parts to her waist, one which seems to angle down at 45 degrees. Her mandibles are large in width, but not too long. A small detail that I'm not sure will help or not, is that the end of her antenna are larg...

Re: Egg?

I'm not the most experienced person on earth, but maybe it is the larvae or pupae, which comes after the egg stage. If you search up 'ant pupae' it does look quite similar..? No, it haven't the same appearance ; and it can't appear just after one night. Oh... oops sorry. Hope you find out what it i...

Is she alive still?

So I have had a supposedly pavement ant queen for a while now. For the first 2 or 3 weeks she didn't really do anything in the test tube set up a I had given her. It was getting really hard not to check up on her, and I thought maybe the test tube set up wasn't working for her. So, I gave her a box ...
