Yeah one time I accidentally brood boosted with a different lasius species and the colony accepted them as they’re own. The different species didn’t attack the original species and vise versa. I wouldn’t go around purposely adding different species but if you did I am sure it wouldn’t affect the colony much.

(Sorry for posting this on your sale post but I really wanted to chime in.)

Hey there. Uhm... I guess a lot of people put what colonies they own here so let's just follow the herd I guess. 

 

 

Ants I keep:

 

Lasius Neoniger (Around 23ish workers)

Tetramorium Immigran (8 Workers)

Myrmica Queen (Not 100% on species)

Formica Subsericea (No workers)

 

I guess people also have a random quote so here's mine
