Red Meadow Ants
The notorious founding behaviour of semi-claustral queens can make it difficult to get started with Myrmica queens, but once a colony's first couple of workers have eclosed, M. incompleta may be one of the most enjoyable species to keep. These ants are active, versatile, and expressive—a wonderful option for ant-keepers who are looking for an interactive and hands-on experience.
