The Swarm

The Swarm [$] are a colony of Reddish Carpenter Ants, Camponotus castaneus, we got through the brilliant AntsCanada GAN Project in October 2018. When we received the colony, it consisted of the Queen (”Kerrigan”), three workers, and some eggs. When the colony is big enough to house in a more complex, multi-part setup, we’ll be adding a live stream from their outworld and maybe their nest. They are a slow growing species so this probably won’t happen until the summer of 2019 or later. Stay tuned!
