These ants live in hollow thin branches (eg elderberry branches). On a low humidity must be ensured. The temperatures should be due to the origin of ants at 26-28 degrees. Recommended here is the use of a heat radiator. The diet is quite easy with sugar or honey water and various insects. The behavior and the way of life he Cataulacus from Africa resemble the Cephalotes from Asia. A beautiful example of convergent evolution.
