Introducing the Camponotus floridanus - Florida Carpenter Ant, a fascinating addition to any ant enthusiast's collection. Very beautiful and aggressive ants. These ants are known for their large size, the queen is huge, 14 to 16 mm and the workers range from 4 to 13 mm in length so very polymorphic and have a distinctive reddish-brown colour.

Maintaining the proper temperature and humidity levels is important for the Camponotus floridanus ants' development and colony growth.
