Hey guys...Lately being very active lol.
As the topic title would suggest my question is about this very unique and rare ant in the hobby.
They are actually native here where i live, i can confidently catch maybe 10 or more which is a lot considering how few alates they produce.
I've been catching them for two years and tried founding at least 15 queens...Nothing, i got one queen to produce 2 workers after that, zero success.
Out of the very few people i have seen and contacted with somewhat successful colonies i got mixed info.Some say i need to introduce workers because they "adopt" queens?
Some say they are claustral some say they aren't.So a lot of info that kind of contradicts itself.Especially considering the one queen that had 2w, i did nothing special, just kept her like any other queen.
So yeah a big mix of info and still nothing.At this point i have tried all of those things people claimed did the trick with them...
Any tips or info on founding these ants would be helpful, but i don't expect there are a lot of people that have kept them or even less see this post...Oh well.
