Iridomyrmex anceps Care Sheet

Iridomyrmex anceps is an extremely active species that develops rapidly. While the brood development time is relatively long, the queen lays a significant amount of eggs, resulting in massive piles of brood. This also means they require a substantial amount of food. A well-sealed outworld is recommended as they have a tendency to escape.

General Information:

– Level of Care: Easy
– Geographic Distribution: Tropical Asia
– Origin: Thailand
– Queen Size: 8mm
– Worker Size: 4mm
– Polygyny: Only large colonies with several thousand workers are polygynous. While workers tolerate multiple queens, the queens are highly aggressive towards each other and would engage in combat. In large colonies, multiple queens can coexist without encountering each other.
– Mature Colony Size: Between 10,000 and 30,000 workers

Maintenance Information:

– Humidity: 70-90%
– Temperature: 20-28°C (ideal at 26°C)
– Diapause: No diapause needed. A decrease in temperature to around 20°C during the winter is sufficient.
– Nest: Any nest equipped with a humid area suitable for the colony’s size will work.


– Diet: Sugary liquids and insects
