THESE QUEENS FLEW IN MID-SUMMER 2021. THEY ARE ALL STRONG QUEENS AND HAVE STARTED LAYING EGGS!
Stenamma Diecki is one of the liveliest and most colourful Stenamma Ant species found in Canada. They are found in most regions of southern Canada and commonly dwell in fallen logs or live trees just like Camponotus.
At Insect Supplies Canada, we sell live Stenamma Ant queens, small colonies and even some large colonies of Stenamma Diecki. They are one of the easiest ants to keep and are considered a great beginner/intermidiate species for all antkeepers.
Queens are normally around 3-4mm while workers range from 2-3mm
The colonies of Stenamma ants can grow very large, they are very active and will live in almost anything they can find and develop until they are a force and can start reproducing more alates!
Overall, Stenamma Diecki is a very satisfying ant to raise from a single queen into a large colony, the brood develops at a steady pace so it wouldn't be long until you would have a beautiful young colony of these gorgeous Stenamma Ants!
