Will be next to impossible. They may co-exist for awhile, but eventually one or both will be killed or severely injured in the process.
Raising 3x Camponotus novaeboracensis, 2x Formica sp, 2x Lasius sp.
If an ant species isn’t polygenous, then no they cannot be housed together. Carpenter ants are NOT polygenous. If you try to have them form a colony together, one or both with die either from attacking each other, or eating one anothers’ brood, brood fighting if they somehow manage to not fight until they both have their own workers, etc. Do not try to house them together or introduce them to one another.
First time ant keeper with 2 formica subsericea queens!
