So, here's the story line of an Auxilio **** colony.
The dominant queen mates with a king. They both land and dig a claustral cell, and the queen lays eggs. The eggs develop into adult queens that make pheromones that attract male workers from other colonies that they mated with and lay soldier eggs. The soldiers lay male eggs, and live for 6 years and then molt into majors. The majors live for 3 years and molt into super majors. The super majors live for 1 year and die. They lay eggs all this time.

it sound like termites will get a better shot at evolving into this.

If you guys could create your own ant species, what would it be called and what characteristics would it have?
I'm thinking of an ant called the barricade ant that is able to collapse the entrances of the tunnels to prevent predators or other ants from entering the nest.
Solenopsis Gigas

a ant with the sting and reproductivity of solenopsis invicta with the size and strength of C. Gigas these ants would be able to have multiple queens aswell

Lasius tigris- large, aggressive, polygynous, fungus growing Lasius which actively hunt fire ants and argentine ants. They can also produce more queens for their colony, for each unrelated queen produces elates with a different pheromone. Therefore, these colonies can grow infinitely large, yet populations are controlled by other colonies of the same species. This species is also non aggressive toward native species unless they are attacked first (Sorry; Formica's going extinct! :lol: ).

Pale grey ants whose queens are two-three inches long, but the workers are only about a millimetre long, that spray formic acid and herd aphids. Also, polygenous, and super-colony forming. And fully claustral, just because that's easier to keep (and the big queens would be easier to find during nups, hehe!). Oh, and with a body shape like Melissotarsus weissi!

Campnotus sp.
Dream ants:
Carebara castanea, Cephalotes, Atta texana
Calyptomyrmex, Discothyrea mixta, Melissotarsus spp.
Proatta, Rhytidoponera aspersa, Gigantiops ... actually, most ants.

Chameleon ants they can camouflage to look exactly like the environment around them that would let them raid other colonies with extreme ease but probably not the best choice for an ant from because there practically impossible to see
