i found this queen ant a week ago an she finally laid eggs. i am wondering what ant this queen is, some basic care, and what ant nests to use
the abdomen looks white with black stripes
she was found wandering under my compost bins which were very moist and it was about an hour after the last rain
she is currently in a test tube setup
my thoughts is she is either a ghost ant (based on size), pavement ant, or rover
the test tube is 13mm for size comparison.
the queen is very chill, will not bite, and is not very squeamish.
again i found this queen under a compost bin in my backyard in north palm beach florida
before anyone says this i am going to move her to a new test tube because her current one looks dirty
sorry the picture looks horrible. i will upload better ones when i can.
