They benefit from having a low power heating source to speed up brood development. åÊThere is conflicting information as to whether this species should be kept with åÊplants and nest above the ground or whether they will live in chambers in the ground. åÊAt AntKit we maintain this species in chambers and they seem perfectly happy.
