I recently found a colony of Formica Rufa with 1 queen and around 500 workers. I have them in a 450L box connected to a smaller dump. They haven’t use the dump yet, but have started to make a small mound, the queen is still in the test tube. They have some pine sap but I haven’t seen them take it yet, and have some eggs.
I will take some photos soon.
Also, I’m looking for another queen / colony of Formica rufa/pratensis. If anybody have, please contact me!maj 8, 2016 kl. 6:00 e m #2148linusForumledare
Looking forward to the photos 😀maj 8, 2016 kl. 7:16 e m #2151
Everyday they continue to amaze me. They now built the mound even more, and have eaten lots of flies and a big moth.
I gave them some honey water today, they didn’t seem very interested. But they liked the maple syrup!
I am getting 4 new queens soon, so I will be able to start my investigations! I plan to be the first myrmecologist focusing only on Formica Rufa 🙂
The more queens and colonies the better!

I now have 4 new queens of Formica rufa. I gave them some workers from this colony and this morning they have an egg 🙂 So cool! Thanks hagberg!
