when do queens fly? (assuming they have nuptial flights)
They're very easy to keep and a lot of fun to watch, good luck if you decide to try it!I thought about keeping Polistes sp. before but I never imagined it was possible, but I made an account on these forums just so I can follow this thread! This is absolutely fascinating, I might have to give it a go when Winter ends.
I don't give mine any extra humidity besides the water bowl since too high humidity/low ventilation can weaken the adult wasps and make the nest mold. And I'd think the main difference between these and myrmecia or similar ants is that polistes colonies only last about 5 months, and don't really get that bigwould keeping them be similar to keeping myrmecia? and what about their humidity levels?
