Re: what is the most craziest thing you feed your ants?

Reptile keepers get used to this. Its a food source like any other. :D Mice don't get used to it.

You're right they dont, it only happens to the...

Re: Opinions on Laws.

I have to believe that the members of this forum are smart enough to realize why moving ants out of there natural range is a bad thing after seeing how RIFA has taken over since their introduction to the southern US area. If someone lacks the intelligence to see this im not sure what to tell them ex...

Is it okay to use plastic as a formicarium? Tupperware and plastic storage bins specifically.
I cant come up with a reason it would not be ok, as long as it was setup right for them. Ive seen plenty of formicariums made from kritter keepers and such.

I find it is easier to see queens because they are usually dark colored, and the cement is a light color. This way there is contrast, and the eye catch...
