Particularities: This ant species ranks among the smallest of all. They are also known as ‘thief ants’ and often nest in close proximity to Lasius or Serviformica species, digging tiny underground tunnels to invade their colonies and stealing their brood for food. When keeping this species, it isn’t absolutely necessary to feed them ant brood, as they’ll quite happily feed on other sources of protein.
