This colony is still doing really well. They have about 200 workers now, and tons of brood.

What would you say is different  that this one is doing so well compared to previous colonies.

dspdrew, do you happen to know what happens to these colonies if their queen dies? Do the workers lay male alate eggs by any chance? I'm curious about the fate of my unfortunate dorries. (not bicolor, but I think it would be similar)

I really hope to raise this genus again, they are so fascinating to watch-- very intelligent and complex for small ants.


Starting this July I'm posting videos of my ants every week on youTube.

I like to make relaxing videos that capture the joy of watching ants.

If that sounds like your kind of thing... follow me >here<
