Crematogaster scutellaris is a species in the subfamily Myrmicinae. This species grows very quickly and forms huge colonies of up to tens of thousands of workers. They are very good at escaping and climbing, which makes them a difficult but also very challenging species. In nature they regularly live in dead wood, so a dry nest from our webshop is recommended.
