Re: My new 3D printed formicarium

They look perfect to me. I wonder where there is excess material, and if it would matter if it stayed on. And two for $35 sounds great. :D Sadly I didn't document the small work I've done on them, basically the bottom open part where the water reservoir is had some excess material that blocked the ...

Re: Reduced price - "scratch & dent" products

Is there any I can buy? I don't mind defects as long as they don't allow the ants to escape... :shock:

Looks Like Colobopsis Sp. To Me.
Yes, that seems like a very good ID. I notice that her faster is sort of curved up, like in some of the pictures I see of them. Only thing I don't see is that amazing looking head. I'd be really excited if she is Colobopsis.

Re: Queen ID Please

Also, I found all of them at the same time and there was not really any males around. I only found one on the opposite side of the house. Could this mean they are all unmated? They all also still have their wings and most of them were just sitting on the glass window not really looking for a place t...

Re: Queen ID Please

A more accurate measurement is about 7mm.

Queen ID Please

So, I have found some more queens, except this time I have not even really a guess as to what they are. She is like 7-9 mm (I'll get measurements later). Found in South Florida at night around 9:00 p.m. https://s7.postimg.org/ca9khwm3d/IMG_1779.jpg?dl=1&_ga=2.235902785.1710045372.1493951976-15553718...

Re: Baby ants!! What next??

Thanks! I ordered a nest from AntsCanada and im going to make my own outworld, or at least try. What do your RIFA like for proteins and sugars? I usually give mine honey ( but very careful because they can get stuck inside of it!) for sugar and I mix it up sometimes and give them an orange. Once I ...

Re: Baby ants!! What next??

Ok, i punched holes in the tape for air. What kind of a set up should I move them into next and when? Well you should wait till you quite a bit of workers. Like atleast 10 or 15 but 20 is optimal. I waited until mine had like 300. Currently my RIFA colony is living in three test tubes connected by ...

Re: Queen dying?

Yes, but she still could have not mated or not been fertile. It doesn't really matter, the point is she is probably going to die. Yep. Could/could not have been. What I'm saying is that just because they die doesn't mean they're infertile. Which is probably a good thing because think how many more ...

Re: Queen dying?

This queen does sound like it is dying. Both of my Camponotus queens went through a similar process. You might look around the queen and see how she's doing. Fertility and mated status likely have nothing to do with this. Perhaps, but I had a queen before that did such a thing and she died after a ...
