Could you PM me the address, I am still not 100% certain which species I'm getting, but I definetly want one of the camponotus fragilis in the starter formicarium, and I am still debating on whether to get the dorymyrmex insanus or just save money for something else.

The best thing to do is send me a message if you are interested in anything. Sorry, the Dorymyrmex isn't available anymore. I forgot to update that listing.

Hey Drew, where do you catch the novemessor? I live in Cupertino, but I don’t mind driving far. I bought ants from Nurbs.

Will the tunnels in a large, natural dirt box collapse if I put a 100+ Andrei colony in it?

It probably won't collapse, but will eventually all be piled in the center. I have two colonies with well over 100 workers in large Dirt Boxes, and there is almost nothing left to tunnel in. :lol: I guess it makes sense when looking at their nests in the wild. I'm probably going to be moving them into something they can't dig in.
