Camponotus are some of the most popular ants for ant keepers and with this little colony you will be off to a great start on your journey!
The workers are a lovely dark red and black colour and are not particularly aggressive, although they can bite!
These queens are quite relaxed and easy to care for and make a great colony for anyone to raise!
