Lasius Flavus Queen Ant for Sale
(Please note we do not post queens to USA and Asia.)
Known as: Lasius Flavus / Meadow Ant
Habitat: Gardens, Grasslands, Meadows and Parks.
Nest: Likes to under grass and meadows.
Size: Queen 8mm
The Lasius Flavus queen can make a colony size of anything up to or around 5000 worker ants. That’s a lot of ants.
For starting out a test tube setup is just fine. Once the colony begins to grow you should consider an acrylic or strong nest for larger colonies. You will need to supply this species with an area in which they can forage for food and seeds.
When winter comes they need to be hibernated at temperatures around 10 to 15 degrees Celsius. Once in hibernation, they will slow down and feeding will not be a big requirement as they will use stored fats and proteins to survive the winter months. Once spring comes slowly start to increase the temperature and they will come out of hibernation.
What do they eat
The Lasius Flavus requires sugar water, honey, proteins such as crickets and mealworms. Water is a requirement as all ants need to drink, sugar water will do the great to help give them an energy boost.
