Camponotus herculeanus 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 and they especially like sweeteners. They will grow very slowly at first but once they have reached 30 workers they will grow a lot faster.
