Care Level: Easy
Founding Type: Claustral
Setup: At the founding stage, a test tube setup or founding chamber with a water source is sufficient. Once the number of workers exceeds ~25, they should be moved into a small nest.
Diet: Queens do not require feeding until workers arrive. When workers arrive, feed sugars and protein regularly.
Queen size: 6mm
Worker size: 3mm
Both the workers and the queen of this species are very visually similar to black pavement ants, but these ones are much more accepting of messy living conditions. They grow very quickly, and get the name “crazy ant” from their fast movements.
