This species of Tapinoma is invasive and is known for its inbreeding tendency’s. Although they do have nuptial flights it is rare as they’ll inbreed inside of the nest producing many new queens who will stay within the colony. They are very fast growing and need a large intake of both protein and sugar. Keeping them well fed will reduce escape attempts! These ants MUST be kept responsibly and safely as if they escape they’ll be just fine in a household with heating and will grow very quickly.
