House-proud ants

Ants are often quite neat and tidy, some species more so that others.

I recently added a test tube pod (from Wakooshi) to my small Messor Barbarus colonies test tube, I have been feeding them crushed seeds and they have rewarded me my returning the 'empties' which is rather good of them.

I've been keeping the tube covered as the queen does not like any light but last time I checked there were three workers so they are likely to remain in the tube for some time yet, quite probably until after hibernation next spring.
