wow, thats brilliant! but how do you keep the humidity right, I thought they had to be in islands? and wheres the heating? thats fantastic though. What do people do when these Atta colonies get too big (in wild they are up to 8 million members arent they?)
I put a hot plate underneath and it creates humidity. People regulate their colony, but me I not regulate my colony. I'm going to at least 500 000-1 000 000 of workers . But they many eat. For 8 millions of workers the colony eat 8000 kg by years minimum.
