HELP condensation in jar
Posted: Wed Mar 04, 2020 1:12 pm
I'm keeping a colony of Solenopsis. Geminata in a jar until my Hybrid nest Solenopsis 2.0 gets here, but there is alot of condensation/ humidity in there (prolly 90%+). Will they be ok for 3-5 more days. I'm in SoCal and my hybrid nest shipped today from salt lake city. This morning the ants were all in a ball together curled up ant not moving. I warmed them up with a heat mat and now the're ok. ten-15 have drowned in water droplets total. colony is like 1-2K ants. they are housed in a large jelly jar with some dirt in it, and little air holes in the top. I give them honey everyday. they have one to two crickets daily, and always have access to water.
