      Page 1 of 2 - Camponotus Herculeanus colony - posted in Ant Keeping Journals: I received a Camponotus Herculeanus queen with some workers and some brood from Crystal today. And Camponotus is lovely. They are big, so its much easier to watch and easier on eyes. They are cool as in they dont panic easily. They dont seem to mind the light, either.   Granted it has it's drawbacks like a long wait for a large colony. I am on year 2 with my Lasius colony and I feel I am still a year or two away from a large colony. But knowing all those ants came from a single queen is amazing to me. If you want a big colony right off the bat, go and try and find a mature colony and bring them home.

      Page 1 of 2 - Camponotus noveboracensis colony not well - posted in General Ant Keeping: After just shy of 4 months hibernation I took them out this was 5 days ago. A very large portion of the workers are dead. The queen seems to be okay though. I have another colony of the same species that went through the same hibernation and only 4 workers died, and they are all back to life . The lifecycle of an ant colony starts with a tiny ant queen. If she is successful in mating and founding a surviving colony, she will be the mother of millions of individuals. But what does the lifecycle of an ant colony look like?

    Put succinctly, alloethism amplifies allometry. Part of the fire ant pattern is illustrated in Figure Passing to the opposite extreme, let us next consider one of the most advanced grades of caste and division of labor discovered so far in ants, that of Pheidologeton diversus of southeast Asia. Colonies of this “marauder ant” contain. Camponotus herculeanus is a very common species of Carpenter ant which lives mainly in the boreal forests of Canada, preferring to avoid warmer areas. It is a fast growing species of Camponotus, and is overall smaller than Camponotus pennsylvanicus though larger than Camponotus novaeborecensis. Like most Camponotus spe5/5(3).

The activity of a population of granivorous ants (Messor barbarus (L.)), studied in the same area, showed a clear dependence on ambient temperature, but, although the colonies were always inside one of the vegetation types, there was no significant relationship between the activity of ants and grasscover.

This, together with other observations, indicates that the possible controlling effect of the Cited by: Collected most commonly using these methods: 40 times hand collecting, 9 times Search, 3 times hand coll., 4 times Bay Area Ant Survey (BAAS), 2 times direct collection, 1 times general collecting, 2 times pitfall trap, 1 times 6L sifted litter, extracted in Winkler sack over 72 hours, 1 times bait, 1 times at pecan shortbread bait, 30 am 3 Jul.

Colony Collection and Ant Maintenance. Experiments were carried out with colonies of the ant M. sancta. Ants were collected in southwestern France, near Narbonne, and then reared in the laboratory at 25°C with 12 h light 12 h dark.

Colonies were housed in several glass test tubes placed in Cited by: The colony is formed by the queen, workers (its children) and eggs, larvae and cocoons. Instructions about the breeding of Camponotus cruentatus (Big and red ant): Camponotus cruentatus is a common species throughout Europe.

In nature, it feeds mainly on sugary substances of aphids and insects. Foraging activity and food collection of the ant Camponotus foreli were studied in a savanna-like grassland on the Mediterranean coast.

This is a thermophilous species with diurnal activity. The colony is formed by the queen, workers (its children) and eggs, larvae and cocoons. Instructions about the breeding of Camponotus barbaricus (Big and orange ant): This species is one of the largest of Europe, especially the queen.

It can become the longest ant in Europe. In nature they mainly live milking aphids and eating dead insects. Colony densities and above-ground activity periods were determined for Camponotus semitestaceus colonies within a shrub-steppe community. crickets indicated that all four ant species tested, Camponotus semitestaceus, Messor andrei, L.

humile, and Pheidole caIifornica, either preferred cookie crumbs (Pecan Sandies) or were equally at- tracted to all baits. Cookie crumbs were used in baiting experi- ments during the summer of Camponotus: Species: C.

In ten years, depending upon the species, colony numbers can reach as high as 5, andindividuals. An overview of the rapidly growing field of ant colony optimization that describes theoretical findings, the major algorithms, and current applications.

The complex social behaviors of ants have been much studied by science, and computer scientists are now finding that these behavior patterns can provide models for solving difficult combinatorial optimization problems. The abundance patterns of ant communities were monitored with pitfall traps during 14 weeks in four northern California, dry farmed, apple orchards: an abandoned orchard undisturbed for 25 years, two ‘organically’ managed orchards, one with a cover crop of bell beans (Vicia faba) and grasses and the other kept clean of cover by discing, and a ‘commercial’ clean cultivated orchard Cited by: Questions addressed by the grant included is the genetic social structure of the black carpenter ant, Camponotus pennsylvanicus, ecology-dependent Will the higher temperatures predicted from climate change result in increased colony density and/or range expansion as predicted (Angilletta et al.

various features of colony social and spatial structure in the facultatively polydomous black carpenter ant, Camponotus pennsylvanicus (DeGeer). The study examined the density, persistence, and the spatiotemporal distribution of colonies across a gradient of land disturbance associated with urban development.

The temporal and spatial pattern. The colony and population structure of the carpenter ant, Camponotus floridanus, were investigated by multilocus DNA fingerprinting using simple repeat motifs as probes [e.g.

(GATA) 4].The mating frequency of 15 queens was determined by comparing the fingerprint patterns of the queen and 17–33 of her progeny by:   I was just wondering if it was a good idea to get my C. Castaneus colony an AC Hybrid Nest.

Currently, they are at a head count of 27 and a ton of brood (including majors). So far, the colony is too big for even my largest test tubes and I needed to give them two just to house them.

Camponotus, the giant ants. Here you will find our changing offer of camponotus ant colonies. These giant ants owe their name to their great size. The largest ant species on earth. They develop somewhat more slowly in the initial phase than other species and are therefore more difficult to breed and keep.

But they are impressive and fast! Abstract. The architecture of subterranean nests of the ant Camponotus socius was studied from casts of plaster or metal. Twenty-four such casts are illustrated using stereo pairs of images.

After study, plaster casts were dissolved to retrieve the workers embedded in them, providing a census of the ants that excavated the by: The Ants (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) of Western Texas: Subfamilies Ecitoninae, Ponerinae, Pseudomyramecinae, Dolichoderinae, and Formicinae (Special .
