Just caught two crematogaster queens today!!! Super exited to get their colonies going!!
If you could make a journal of them that would be awesome! I’d love to see how a Crematogaster colony grows!

Nvm, I know what it is now. Of course I’ll do it! I’ll tell you what it’s called via private message!
Keeping:
x1 Lasius Neoniger
x2 Crematogastor

I have a small Camponotus nearcticus colony, a Ponera pennsylvanica queen,a large Solenopsis molesta colony, and a Lasius claviger queen.

“Also two Atta Mexicana queens (for those I would like advice)”
The temperature and humidity need to be within a range leave the founding queen in the dark and for nutrients and food feed them leaves and in think they like rose petals, but they must have their fungus because exepct plant sap the workers drink for a boost all collected will be given to the fungus, which is the queens’ and brood’s only food sorce so very important.

For you pheidole try feeding them more meat and protein if that doesn't work then they should grow out if it
