Ant colony Lasius flavus 10+
The Lasius flavus colony is also called the yellow meadow ant, an ant common in our country. Our ant colonies consist of a queen with brood and several workers. This number depends on the number of eggs that developed into ant (egg-larva-pupa-ant). This colony has been at least 10 workers (up to 20) and the workers are thus handled by the fertilized queen ant itself.
The ant colony is intended for the ant farms of acrylic, gypsum and sand. We also recommend the use of an arena. The ants there can get their nourishment and bringing waste. Many products have integrated an arena. For the first time the tube has enough room for the colony. On several Ant Farms You can find these ant colony in a back combination offer price.
