Re: solenopsis invicta queens eggs not growing

Probably the eggs won't hatch without care and also without a queen a colony can not be sustained :(

Re: Will GMO affect my ants?

As far as my knowledge goes GMO crops are usually treated with the BT protein ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacillus_thuringiensis ), you can do a little research on it but I fear it does affect ants as well

Re: is a Fish tank better or a plastic container and is soil better

You'll have hard time attaching the glass tank to anything else because for plastic you just drill a hole whenever

And it's said it's more natural to have the ants dig in soil than having them in a formicarium but they will also be harder to study
