Crematogaster spp, or Acrobat ants, are probably some of the Canadian ants that will show you the most personality, due to the fact that they wave their abdomens around when threatened or excited. These are ants that do well with a humidity source but can fare just as well in a dry wooden setup if provided extra water sources. You will find that Crematogaster can explode in population if provided a source of heat (preferably above 25 degrees Celsius), and do especially well when fed large amounts of protein. Overall, these are extremely fast growing ants, and some of the best for beginners.
***Our colonies of this species will be participating in an experiment until around the beginning of February. Any orders of these species will be delayed till then
