OhioAnts is proud to have a collaboration with OSU and the Adams Megalomyrmex Ant Lab. This forum section is dedicated to advanced ant research and topics around specimen collections and collaborative research.
if you're new to the hobby, identification can be difficult, post clear photos of your ants and the community will help you identify your species! CLEAR photos are required, use flash, or lights to help get better photos. Post only one ant ID question per post please! Multiple photos of the subject will give better ID's.
Keeping track of our ant colonies is a great way to help remember how the colony has evolved and changed. It's even more beneficial for others to gain insight on how to keep colonies of the same or similar species. Sharing your colonies journal will help not only you, but everyone in our hobby!
