Instructions about the breeding of Queen of Solenopsis fugax:

Solenopsis fugax is a very common species throughout the Iberian Peninsula. In nature, it feeds mainly on sugary substances of aphids and insects.

 

They mainly live milking aphids and eating dead insects.  You can feed them with nutritious substitutes of aphid's treacle, as the nutritious syrup (anthouse.es) and insects already dead.

 

Queen arrives in a test tube with its first eggs. Once you have it at home, it is important to add a micro drop of water with sugar or honey, very diluted to prevent drowning. You can also use basic compounds, proteins or vitamins, in order to make easier the  recovering from the trip and get a good set of eggs.

 

When the first workers (nurses) are born they are not quite complete ants, their development has been accelerated by the queen. They do not have the size of a normal worker. They are also more fragile to disease and they have a shorter life. It is a critical moment because the queen does not have strength to raise another generation of ants. If they die, the queen die too. Therefore, we must be extremely careful. We should not miss humidity or food, but we should not go too far with this last because leftovers can become rotten and fungus and diseases can arise.

 

Once the queen has her nurses and you see that they can not be fed inside the tube without risk of escape will be the right time to move them to a new ants nest. It's recommended the acrylic nests type Mushroom to keep a proper control of humidity.
