S4E185 CUBE chatShaala: Formicarium

Everyone knows about ants as Ants are present everywhere but what’s fascinating about them? Why Cubists are behind ants? How does an ant colony forms? @Man Masih Beck RANCHI CUBE had given his hypothesis on how does a colony forms? Later on @Seethalakshmy gave update on her ant Culture.

- A formicarium was formed by @Seethalakshmy CUBE in her CUBE HOME LAB, in order to attracts ants and culture them.Fortunately ants started to visit the formicarium and also started digging the soil in the formicarium and formed a colony there.But was there any Queen there ? How did ants make the colony? Did ants carry larvae and pupae in the formicarium? All these questions made discussion very interested.
