Camponotus balzani Breeding Sheet

Camponotus balzani is a South American Camponotus species that is easy to breed. They seem to stay away from cotton more than other South American species, so it can be inferred that their low humidity requirement, coupled with their orange color, makes them a wood-dwelling species.
