Hey, I was searching through the Ant Care Sheets and couldn't find anything on brachymyrmex patagonicus (black rover ant) and was wondering if anyone happened to know any interesting, important, or unique info on them i should be aware of as I am currently taking care of a queen of that species now. Found her back in mid November and she has around 13 eggs now. Thankyou folks! <|:]

it is pretty standard for ants. Make sure to feed sugars like honey or sugar water, and make sure that it doesn't have pesticides and that kind of stuff. Also make sure to not give them too much at once or else they may drown. also give them more proteins as the colony gets larger. good luck!


Ants I am keeping:

 none for now, planning on being more active this year

Are you heating the queen? November to now is a very long time for a tiny species like that to not get workers.
