Yes they sting. And it is somewhat painful I have been stung several times by these girls. As you have deduced, they are a good species to keep though. I have a four year old colony that is doing great. They are pretty easy to care for as they are primarily seed eaters. I feed them crushed grain (that I feed to my chickens) and that's pretty much it. I've tried other things, but they like the crushed grains the best.
I have noticed that they prefer a soil formicarium as they love to dig. What are your thoughts for a formicarium?
