Re: Oecophylla smaragdina

I have no experience with Weaver Ants, however Mikey of AntsCanada has a couple videos about his colony. I'll link them for you. Hope they help!

Re: How to move queen into test tube from omninest verticle

Are you saying you want to move the queen out of a vertical nest, to a test tube? And if so, why?

Quote from the post "if you ordered these items or a gear pack which contains these items, you will be receiving these new v2 versions." This means the new versions have replaced all the old versions in the store if I'm not mistaken.

Re: Ant Nuptial Flight Schedules in Grand Junction Colorado

I'm from Northern Colorado and I've also been looking into ant keeping. I've done a little research for common ants in Colorado and I've come up with Pavement Ants (Tetramorium), Field Ants (Formica), Sugar Ants or Odorous House Ants (Tapinoma Sessile), and Carpenter Ants (Camponotus).

Re: Buy Formicarium Now or Wait?

Thank you for the responses. I am almost certain I will be raising a tetramorium colony, considering they are very common where I live and I hear they are a good beginner species. I was wondering if the AntsCanada team was working on any new or upgraded formicaria that I should wait for.
