Particularities: The only fire ant species in Europe with a genuine soldier ant caste. This species comes in a whole range of colour variations, from light-brown to black, sometimes even in quince yellow or red. The Pheidole species has two worker ant castes: normal minor-worker ants and some eye-catching soldier ants with large heads. Always be sure to use an effective anti-escape system. These are really quite aggressive and have a very marked and impressive sense of recruitment.
