Instructions about the breeding of Pheidole pallidula...

Caution: We ship ONLY 1 COLONY or queen and ONLY 1 SPECIES per order or ant's nest, so you must choose correctly the one you want. We do not charge for the ants. They are FREE. You only have to pay for the shipping costs.

It is essential to have prior knowledge before having ants. We particularly recommend the book  Criar Hormigas de Raul Martinez. (click here)

 

You will receive the ants inside a test tube with food and water for two weeks. They were born inside the test tube and they are well there.

 

Difficulty of breeding: MEDIUM

 

The colony is formed by the queen, 5-15 workers (its children) and eggs, larvae and cocoons.

 

Instructions about the breeding of Pheidole pallidula:

 

Pheidole pallidula form castes of workers and soldiers (big-headed). Soldiers defend the colony and workers are responsible for its maintenance.

Once you have received the ant colony, the first thing to do is to feed it if possible (water with sugar and derivatives). If there are too many ants, the best thing to do is to put them directly into the nest.

To feed the ants inside the test tube you can use a syringe. Insert the syringe needle through the cotton plug and put a droplet. This droplet must not be large because the ants could drown. Once they have drunk, remove the excess. A cotton bud can be used to clean, but be careful when you remove the plug because the ants can escape.

You can keep the ants in the test tube used for transportation as long as there is water inside. If you keep them inside the tube you must feed them at least twice a week.

To put the ants in the ant nest there are two methods:

- Pour out the contents into the nest, tapping to drop the ants off the tube.

- Place the tube, without the plug, in the ant nest or in the foraging area and wait the ants to relocate by themselves. This may require a lot of patience (days or weeks).

Their diet is based primarily on insects, although they can eat sweet food and seeds (sunflower, for example).

 

Watch out! They have a special tendency to try to find a way to escape, so you have to close the lids.

 

Sizes:

  • Queen:   6-8.5mm
  • Workers: 1.6-2.6mm
  • Soldiers: 3.3-4.9mm 

IMPORTANT WARNING:

Pheidole pallidula is a species able to live perfectly in the kitchens of our homes, so if you choose these ants you must take extra security measures to prevent escapes.
