Just got this Colony from some fire-wood destined for the fire pit. Around 200 Workers and 4 Queens. I plan to give them a piece of wood to "dig into" and nest inside :D I want to see what they will do, plus I have an active "visible" Colony of these already. Will post pictures when I get time!

I have gotten them into their new setup and fed them. They seem to be a little bit more then 200+ for sure now that I got a look at them.

They are doing well so far. I have noticed that they really like water, so I will continue to give them tons :D

Sure I'll also go post some pics of Myrmica they're the pretty common here. Like the myrmicinae version of Lasius. :P

 

Weekend sounds good.

I decided to snoop on my ants and feed them yesterday, lifted up the food dish thing and found tons of new eggs and brood :D The Colony is very happy I think!
