Messor capitatus

Messor capitatus

Messor capitatus are a medium size species. 

Colonies tend to be single queens but can still reach large numbers in successful colonies.

These Ants are a medium size with queens reaching Queen size: 12-14mm and Worker size: 4-12 mm

Messor capitatus require a supply of Seeds.

Like most Ants they will eat Sugar for Carbs and Pre-Killed Insects for Protein. 

Keep these Ants between 24-28C with a humidity of 40-60%, keeping them closer to 28C will speed up brood development.
