    • Species Info

      Dorymyrmex bureni is an orange, energetic ant from the Southeast US. They are sensitive to disturbances, but still grow easily and quickly. They're erratic and have a wide appetite. 


      These ants MUST get liquid sugars frequently. Colonies may collapse without sugars for long periods of time. Though they need sugars frequently, they still love protein. They will eat a variety of protein, like mealworms, fruit flies, and crickets.


      Dorymyrmex bureni requires heating. Their nests should be between 82-87 degrees fahrenheit. Without heating they will grow slowly or not at all.


      Dorymyrmex bureni does not need a typical cold diapause, but may need a few weeks to a month off of heat in room temperature or slightly cooler. If you do this, make sure to continue feeding sugars. 


      Brood development takes 4-6 weeks, usually around 4-5 weeks with heating and proper feeding. Colonies could reach the hundreds in the first year and thousands for the years after that. 


      Queen size: 6-8mm

      Worker size: 3-4mm
