A beautiful species of Monomorium with a distinct dark red colouring. Extremely fast growing and egg to worker times are around 4weeks! This species can start as a single queen but will very quickly begin to produce new fertile egg laying queens. Keeping them at a firm 27c will promote faster growth. It is important to keep this species very securely as you do not want them escaping! A good barrier and escape prof equipment is needed. I’ve found this species to do well in acrylic and with the correct amounts of protein and sugars will become a very strong colony in little time.
