Re: Name Voting

Bro, I think the bloody empire perfectly fits them. Just their personality and smell and everything, it goes perfectly :mrgreen: They also have been seen making some humungous nests.

Re: What should I do with my ants right now?

Oh I wasn't saying that like they were curled up or something. They were legitimately sitting down and walking around and just doing their normal thing, even though they were slowing down and not foraging and brood was slowing around when I put them in. I'll take your stuff in mind next winter, but...

Re: What should I do with my ants right now?

Also, I try to make sure that my colonies can forage freely as soon as a several workers have eclosed. It's ok to seal them in a tube for hibernation, but they should not be given insects. Sugar may be offered, but make sure it is on a tray and soaked into cotton or coffee filter to prevent workers...

Re: What should I do with my ants right now?

Not knowing isn't a crime, but there are a lot of resources here explaining hibernation. You at least have been providing food on a tray, which is the only practical way of feeding ants inside the tube. So, a misconception I see often is that an ant is only hibernating when it curls up like a littl...

Re: What should I do with my ants right now?

Also thank you shaky33. I will probably try that. That is actually a cricket I gave them in that picture. I couldn't afford a formicarium from AntsCanada, so I decided Tar Heel Ants would be the second best. I am planning on buying a Fortress that is customized to fit Formica a bit better. Here is t...

Re: What should I do with my ants right now?

I'm so sorry I didn't know. The outworld didn't work because talcum powder got everywhere and it was way too messy. For now as an outworld, I will give them the outworld of the formicarium when it comes, and leave the actual nest open for if they choose to move on their own. I caught the queen in la...

What should I do with my ants right now?

Ok, I have a colony of what I think it Formica Subsericea. I took my ants out of hibernation about 2 weeks ago. Until now, 3 of them out of 9 have died. They drowned or got stuck somehow, but that is not my worry as they aren't super important. (Still a bummer :cry: ) I switched their test tube to a...
