Need your advice on this!

Hi!

I’m from Sweden and i have been looking for interesting ants to keep around the internet and I stumbled upon Camponotus herculeanus witch I believe is olimorphic (not sure if it’s called that) witch is super cool! 8-)

So I started digging but then I started gettting other signals saying that they are absent in Sweden!
So I got scared and ended up here!
Now I need you guys’ help!! :? :( :o :roll:

They are actually very common in Sweden.

olimorphic
The word is polymorphic.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.

Right! I meant when a species has major and minor workers!
