Crematogaster Cerasi is one of the fastest-growing species of ant in Canada. A fun fact about the Crematogaster genus is that they will wave their abdomen in the air if agitated. They are extremely hardy when it comes to hibernation if you are looking for a beginner-friendly species.

Worker size: 3-5 mm

Major size: False

Multiqueen: False

Nuptial flight timeframe: Mass flights occur between August-September 

Hibernation: True, November-March at 1-10°C

Care Guide:

Despite their hardy nature, it is still important to provide proper care for an optimal growing season. 


Crematogaster cerasi will eat anything they get their hands on. From insects (beetle larvae, fruit flies, or roaches) to meat (ham, turkey bacon, or chicken) and carbohydrates like Honey, sugar water, or nectar. 

Temperature and Humidity:

The temperature should range from 18-29C and humidity between 25-50% (room humidity or a little less)

Ant nest

Crematogaster cerasi will do great in any of our setups. Though, for this species, we recommend getting the antville wooden ant nest, as this species does not require much humidity. When choosing the size of the nest, the colony should take up at least 40%+ of the nest capacity to insure the colony doesn't feel vulnerable and stressed.
