Hello, my name is Antkeeper_21 and you perhaps see me replying in some ant keeping journals. As you may have predicted, I joined this forum in the beginning of 2021. I’m interested in keeping Lasius Niger, Myrmica Rubra and even if I’m lucky, Solenopsis Invicta (think I spelt it right). Also looking forward to be an entomologist when my GCSE’s are done. Merry late Christmas and Happy New Year

Welcome to the forum! I think Lasius niger are just as fun as Solenopsis invicta, but without the painful sting and catastrophic ecological damage.

Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.
