Digged out some cocoons by accident more than a year ago. The colony survived and they now explore their 30l container.

I'm growing some weeds inside it with a led lamp but since the original soil was contaminated with weedkiller I had to replace most of it.

Pillbugs too for recycling the waste.

Need to spray water each day and turn on the lights manually.

In Norway, it is approximately 56 different kinds of ants. How many types is it where you live, and which kind is this?

I don't know. Looks like a common black garden ant but they aren't attracted by most sweets.

My camera still isn't good enough.

I've digged them out just a few cm below the surface. Queen and some cocoons.

They would have died in that spot it gets waterlogged and full of weedkiller.
