Lasius niger breeding project

🇬🇧 Lasius niger is a species of ant that you observe in your garden. As part of our project on recreating butterflies-plant-ants relationships, we introduce you to the world of this species through our breeding in the laboratory. In the tube, you can discover the beginning of the breeding of this species with the queen (the largest ant), the first generation of workers and the first eggs (small white circles) which will develop into cocoons then workers.
