Camponotus foreli tingitanus

Description

This is a monogynous (single-queen), claustral, glossy black ant species native to North Africa, a subspecies of Camponotus foreli. Their glossy black, polymorphic workers appear in three different sizes (minor, media, major). The colony’s population reaches only a few hundred workers, so there is no need to worry about overpopulating. They are timid compared to other ants, avoiding conflict and generally preferring to flee rather than engage in open battles. They do not guard their food sources, their workers look for food alone. In the wild, they make their nest in open forests and at forest edges. They can tolerate temporary water or food shortages well. The queen’s expected lifespan can reach up to 10-15 years.

Food:  Honey and insects.

Reproduction: The colony reproduces slowly, raising no more than 10-20 workers in the first year. However, by the third year, they can reach a population of 100 workers.

Hibernation: At 15-20°C, from November to February.
