Camponotus Cruentatus Carpenter Ants

Camponotus Cruentatus Carpenter Ants


Introducing the Camponotus Cruentatus, one of the largest ant species in Europe! The queen ant is incredibly sturdy and the workers will only attack if their nest is disturbed. They have strong mandibles and an acid gland to defend themselves. The Camponotus Cruentatus mates during warm days in May/June and begins founding colonies claustral, without any feeding. With the potential to grow up to 10,000 individuals, this ant species is a fascinating addition to any ant collection.
