Camponotus cruentatus is a species in the Formicinae subfamily. They grow very slowly but your patience will certainly be rewarded, they are very large ants with a red tint that especially like sweeteners. They will grow very slowly in the beginning but once the colony has reached 30+ workers they will grow much faster.
