Polyergus rufescens - amazon slave ant

It's called Amazon slave ant. On warm summer days, this species makes raids on nearby Serviformica colonies, from which amazons take pupae from their nests. They then hatch into an unsuspecting slave worker in the Amazon's nest, caring for the amazon mother's brood and workers. The amazon workers themselves do not perform any other more important functions. Polyergus rufescens workers are very fast and aggressive.

For sale is a smaller colony with a queen from the 2022 swarm.
