MURIEL our Pheidole sp. colony.
We've got a few Pheidole colonies growing.
The one we're showcasing here is MURIEL, one of our first ever ant colonies. They've only just woken from hibernation in the last few weeks and they're constantly moving their brood around to the optimum position.
Their current home is an Inception Chamber from Tarheel Ants and we've been having a lot of success. This species likes to hang their larvae from the walls so they can feeds them easily and the rough sandy surface of the Inception Chambers is perfect.
Check it out above.
In part 2 we are looking at the various food options within each food group.
In the first part of this two part series we take a look at ant food.
In Part 3 we take a look at identifying the species.
In Part 2 we take a look at identifying a queen.
