Description: Pachycondyla crassinoda is a large ponerine from South America. Concerning the foundation, you must feed the queen every 2-3 days with sugary liquid and then also insects when there are larvae. The foundation is possible in pleometrosis, that is to say with several queens who will help each other in order to maximize the success of the foundation. Pachycondyla crassinoda is monogyne, so it is necessary to separate the queens when there are cocoons, so that the most difficult stage of founding has passed.
