Messor barbarus ants are interesting to observe because there is a caste division in them (queen, majors, supermajors and minor workers)

They are relatively large, if you compare them with Lasius niger.

They are not demanding - their basic food are seeds and occasionally protein (e.g. mealworm, wood eater insects, crickets). We serve protein foods killed, we do not organize battles between insects.

 

BREEDING ADVICE:

If you buy small colonies, we recommend growing the ants in a test tube to 12-15 workers before releasing them into the formicarium. Otherwise, the ants may feel lost and the colony will develop more slowly.

 

These ants are not native Polish ants and so cannot be released into the wild in Poland. In the event that you do not want to keep them, please contact AntCenter to transfer them.

 

Below you can download a detailed instruction on the care and keeping harvesting ants at home:
