On March 14 my buddy David gave me two colonies of Tetramorium Caespitum (pavement ants). They are tiny little ants, but very interesting.
Today my first Nucleus arrived from Tarheel Ants. I'm so excited it's finally here! I set one of the tubes of these T. Caespitum inside the outworld and put the lid back on it to allow them to move in at their leisure. I used a cotton ball to block half the nest (Macks great advice) to keep them from using the entire nest until the colony is bigger. This colony will be referred to as Nucleus 1 from now on.
