Lasius claviger are a parasitic species, meaning the queens invade another Lasius colony, kill their queen, and trick the workers into thinking she is their queen. Then she lays eggs and the host workers care for them to adulthood. The host workers eventually die out, leaving the Lasius claviger workers behind, and a Lasius claviger colony is born. This is not good beginner species.

As far as test tube substitute the next best thing are water picks/floral picks that you can buy from flower shops.
Keeping:
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula
