oh no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please don't try to keep them, if you don't know how to care then just don't. I'm just saying that you haven't even raised good begginer species, then you shouldn't keep this kind of ant until you have more experience

Any nuptial flights here in campeche? It seems like life always does the "when you adk your crush out and she has a bf" thing with ants

I’d guess nuptial flights coincide either with the start or end of the rainy season. I used to see thousands of leaf cutter queens when the rains started back when I lived in Honduras. They called them zonpopos de Mayo.

Its probably not a super major and make sure they are actually eating the camponotus major.

If the workers are dying not everything is okay.
