Not exactly "lil" anymore! :lol:
Why keep ants that aren't found in your yard?
There are so many fascinating ants right where you live!
I disagree with the keeping/buying of ants that aren't in your area.

HAPPY TWO YEARS ANNIVERSARY!!
Two years ago i got the queen and today she's gotten a big colony. I think i will feed them just some honey or maybe a boiled egg as they aren't really interested in eating. Also im getting owned by real life and am ill again so can't do much to celebrate it :(
Congrats on your colony's two year anniversary! Get well soon. Also I know I'm late for this I went to camp recently and didn't have internet and I almost lost my account when I came back today.

Still at vacation but i caught a queen here lol. I had two small vials on me so i took some moist cotton, stuffed it at the closed end and put the queen inside and closed the lid which has small holes poked in. I won't do ID yet as there are small kids here who would probably kill the queen if i took it out. But from memory i think she looked like a tetramorium which is great since i wanted a tetra queen. She took her wings off instantly so she is mated. Its gonna get confusing soon with all the queens so i should start thinking of some names :lol:

I hope you're prepared, because almost all tropical and subtropical Tetramorium are semi-claustral. If she looks like a fully-claustral queen, chances are she isn't Tetramorium.

Aw crap i can't feed her here anything. We'll return back on Tuesday so only then i will be able to feed her. Cuz now that you've said it, her thorax doesn't really look that large so she could be semi claustral

Do you have pictures? You can feed her anything, even a crystal of sugar can work.

These are the best i can do right now. I know these are trash but she has laid a small batch of eggs. I gave her a slapped mosquito and will probably rehydrate the cotton (or rather add another wet cotton) day after tomorrow. Now i hope she survives the 15 hours long train trip back home :?

Imma make her another journal so new people here don't get their mind exploded by confusion

From this angle she looks like Crematogaster. She is a subfamily Myrmicinae ant for sure tho and I can also confirm she is fully-cluastral.
