Habitat requirements:

Air humidity:   Arena: 50 - 60%; Nestpart: 60 - 70%;

Temperature: Arena: 21 - 30°C;  Nestpart: 23 - 27°C - you will need a heating mat here in the UK!

Kind of Ant Nest: Substrate or Plaster bedding (options with built-up heating).

Outworld size: Medium to Large depending on the colony size

Outworld Substrate: Sand or sand-loam (dry)

Decoration: pebbles, leaflitter, twigs, dried moss etc.

Colony can reach approx. 10,000 workers in the wild only. We've managed to grow a colony of around 3000 workers for 2 years, starting with 7 queens and around 150 workers. Coupled with their pronounced polygynous trait, their colonies possess the capacity to expand at an impressive speed.

The queen's size is 11mm and the workers are small, around 5mm.

They are very good climbers so you will need good escape prevention such as our PTFE Fluon.

Feed them organic honey, and insects (fruit flies, baby crickets, mealworms and locusts). We have upgraded our Protein Jelly formula so it's the perfect substitution for live food.
