So I have a small colony of Trap-jaw ants (Odontomachus simillimus) with 1 queen, 1 worker, 2 pupae and 10-20ish eggs. They are currently housed in a tubs and tubes setup with some sand inside. Also, the queen decided to use some sand to construct a chamber and some small tunnels inside the test tube, looking at other peoples trap-jaw ant colonies they don't seem to construct anything in the test tube which is weird (to me anyways) (did yours construct anything in the test tube?). The colony really likes small cut up dubia roaches and will almost never reject them. Currently unable to post pics though, will post some pics very soon.
