Aphaenogaster rudis is an arboreal species that aids forests and woods in seed dispersal. This species will eat the skin off of seeds and drop the remains, which usually results in the start of a new sapling or plant. They do best under 30-50% humidity and 24-27 degrees Celsius. They do best with a substrate as they have no social stomach and need something to soak up liquids. Workers are 4-6mm while queens are 7-8mm.
