You Know Your an Ant Keeper When

Every random worker you find in your house causes slight panic as you quickly ensure none of your colonies have escape holes.

You have test tubes in every backpack you own just in case.

You find yourself stating how gorgeous a specific queen ant is only for your friends to give you strange looks.

Any container can be a formicarium if you try hard enough.
Current Colonies
2x Formica lasioides

Currently Founding
2xTetramorium sp. e
Camponotus vicinus

This is me. :lol:

You know your an ant keeper when.. attempt to catalogue the ants around your house. (I've got some Crematogaster, lots of Tetramorium and Tapinoma, and a few Lasius.)

.. you go on a hike with someone and they get annoyed because you stop to look at ants every few minutes.

..if you're reading this topic right now.

Your girlfriend screams "SPIDER!" and your response is "dinner time!".

... you take a mental note of every sidewalk you see

... you have accidentally shattered a test tube in public

... every rock in your yard has been flipped
