Myrmica rubra 2 queens with eggs (ethically sourced)
Known as the fire ants of Europe fairly aggressive with prey and have a nice sting that feel like being stung by a stinging nettle they are capable of having more than one queen in a single colony could potentially have 30+ queens in a single colony.
We can proudly say these queens were collected ethically from nuptial flights unfortunately the vast majority if this species sold is from colonies that have been dug up from their natural habitat we could mean queens are infertile and the workers have short lifespans which results in a colony collapse and no brood to turn to new workers.
