Beitragvon Messorus » 5. Okt 2008 16:07

Hello all
I know, that this is Deutsch forum, but I think, in English forum is no person who have experience with this nice ant specie.
For future I would like to get these ants and Iwant just to informate, that if are there some problems with their keeping or somethink like that....? I have experience with 30 ant species above, can I keep these ants easily? How does these ants behave in formicariums? Does they sting?

Just English answers, please :D

EDIT ANTSTORE: (German translation)
Hallo an Alle.
Ich weiß, dass es sich hierbei um ein deutsches Forum handelt, aber ich denke, im englischen Forum gibt es keine Person, die Erfahrungen mit dieser Art wunderbaren Ameisenart hat.
In Zukunft möchte ich diese Ameisen halten und möchte nur ein paar informationen. Gibt es vielleicht einige Probleme mit der Haltung oder etwas anderes was noch zu beachten ist ....? Ich habe Erfahrung mit 30 Ameisenarten. Kann ich diese Ameisen leicht halten? Wie ist das Verhalten diese Art im Formicarium? Hat sie einen Stachel?

Hello, i keep these ants, so i think that i can help you with your questions. At first, these species can´t move on glass.
Furthermore they have a sting and they love it to catch your food. Accordingly, the formicarium should be set up like rainforest with some leaves and ground-growing plants.
I keep them in a ytong but they don´t like it, because they live only on the ground. A problem may be caused by high humidity. It is meant that the cocoon of the larvae aspirate with water so that the larvae suffocating. Another problem is, that the ants give some larvae as feed to the other larvae and last but not least, the metamorphosis requires a lot time, i don´t know how long.
