Hey everyone, I live in the Dallas area by way of California and I've raised a few ant colonies, but no major colonies over 100 workers. I notice that there are an abundance of S. invicta in Texas. I kept around 25 queens at one point and it got out of hand really quickly.
I currently keep 3 Monomorium minimum queens together with about 20-25+ workers (they're too small to count and they huddle with each other most of the time.) I'm currently keeping them in a large plastic jar with rolled up, damp paper towels. I haven't kept ants in years so I didn't have anything to keep them in. Surprisingly it worked really well and they are doing great! I'm just worried about mold and since they have such a large space, they may be hesitant to move which I've dealt with from past experiences. I have a few pictures and will post them up when I can!
