I've seen lots of journals and threads about other ant species like camponotus, formica, pheidole, and even lasius, but I feel like Nylanderia is underrated. I even keep a big colony of them from when I was a beginner ant keeper, and haven't even bothered to post about them. But now, I see how interesting they can be. They eat almost anything, are great species for beginners, and grow amazingly quick. Not to mention when they have nuptial flights, you can find them almost anywhere. Does anyone else keep a big colony of nylanderia like this?

They are one of my all-time favorite ants to keep.
