New to ant-keeping? Glad to help!

  • Every ant has a specific job.

  • Ants can become zombies.

  • Ants can lift up to 50 times their body weight.

  • Ants don't have ears or lungs so they use chemicals to communicate and they breathe in oxygen through spiracles. All the ants in the colony are female.

  • Some ants are homeless, Army Ants for instance. The worker ants make a nest out of their own bodies to protect the queen, the food, and the eggs.

  • Find everything you need to know about ants' care and ant-keeping on our Blog.
