Reasons why Carpenter ants are my favorite

So I have a few reasons why I like carpenters ants
1.They are pretty big
2.They live longer than normal
3.They grow slower so they don't need as much space
4.Dont sting
5.Queens are easy to notice
6.are good beginner species

I hope these reasons inspire you to raise these ants
Although they are not the best for impatient people so if you are one of them I would look for another species
