    I be a DOCTOR6 hari yang lalu

    I had my first worker ant emerge last week. I THINK they are Lasius Niger. It looks like I'll only get the one worker ant from the first batch of eggs. Idk what happened to the others...maybe she (the queen) ate them. There is however a newly laid clutch of eggs. They're in a tube setup and I gave them a droplet of honey at first, am catching a fruit fly right now to offer a protein source. Will one worker ant be able to keep the queen alive until more workers from the second batch of eggs can hatch? (I figure one worker is a lot better than none) Edit: just gave them their first fruit fly....she (the worker) is going crazy like she won the lottery! πŸ˜‚

    Before some days I was looking at a wild ant colony that looked like messor barbarus and suddenly a queen came out.I captured her and placed her in a test tube setup. Do I have to feed her until she lays eggs?

    Great video. I appreciate your comments. I also agree that ants need to stay where they are, sending species all over the world is not good. Only exception would be if a permit was required from the government. If I sell any queens it only to people in my local area and definitely the same country. Here is Australia there are different rules for different states. Always ensure the local laws are abided by. Thanks for your content, love the channel and you have my subscription πŸœπŸ‘πŸΌ

    Hi, Im thinking of setting up a colony, I want to get something from the Antstore, I like the idea of a larger arena if a slide inset. That way its in one big unit. I'm not a fan of hibernating them, want them on display all year, When a species has hibernation is it really necessary?

    I've caught plenty of ants through the summer, formica lemani, mymrica ruginodis, lasius flavous and ofcourse lasius Niger... However... My first colony I purchased last year has had many ups and downs, max population I've had it to is 6 workers and then they died and I only have 2 workers... If anyone has advice please do tell, I feed them local raw honey and usually give them a fruit fly for protein

    Nightcrawler0_2Bulan Yang lalu

    Don't really agree with you on your views on exotic ants i'm 52 and been keeping ants in the UK for many many years. Yes there should be more info from sellers but I for one refuse to use sites such as facebook altogether so personally find it difficult to source exotic ants at a fair price. The only place I have found is run by a complete plonker who thinks nothing of the ants he sells, (British ants) and i would not buy from him either, so even though I would love to buy some more exotic queens to add to my very cared for collection I currently have no known options.

    Nice! I've been keeping ants for almost a year now. All my ants are native to where I live here in Australia. I have three colonies in formicarium setups, Aphaenogaser, Iridomyrmex and some Pheidole. Plus I have two different Camponotus and one mystery colony still in test tubes. I've been loving this hobby so thanks for the inspiration.

    Antman I am trying this with both lasius Niger and lasius flavus since I was also interested. I made a multiple queen colony and there were some benefits such as faster brood development rate and less chance of queen death. Possibly because the strongest queens held up the weaker queens
