This is a ponerinae species of ant, Queens measure 13mm with workers varying from 8mm to 12mm. They are an aggressive species from the rainforests of Asia, they prefer temps of 27c with a humidity of 80%. Ytong / gypsum nests are appreciated with a fine layer of substrate such as coco fibre / sand / soil and small gravel. This is essential for cocoon production. Queens will be housed in a large single chamber bamboo tube with substrate on arrival which is perfect for the founding process or you can choose the Queen only and they’ll arrive in a standard test tube.
