     Slowly stalking its prey underneath the rotten log. The 100-legged entity is unaware of what would happen next... *SNAP* A quick chomp of the jaws is glued stuck to the unsuspecting prey and a quick potent sting to follow.

Stigmatomma orgenense, one of the strangest and best centipede hunter in Canada. This species of ant is harder to care for than your average Lasius or Camponotus. Stigmatomma orgenense specializes in hunting centipedes, though it can uncommonly accept other food like the peanut beetle larvae. Fortunately, they are polygynous, meaning they can possess multiple queens in a colony. This makes up for their slow growth rate. Stigmatomma is also quite light sensitive and loves to nest in humid soil environments, so it is important to constantly keep their setup humid and with dirt or any substrate that they could use to block light. 

Care Guide:

They might be difficult to care for but it's not impossible!


Stigmatomma oregonense might be a little picky. Though they LOVE to eat termites, centipedes, and peanut beetle larvae. They might also accept sugar water, but solid sugar works. 

Temperature and Humidity:

The temperature should range from 19-29C and humidity between 55-80% (humid)

Ant nest

Sigmatomma oregonense will do great in most of our setups. Though, for this species, we recommend getting any of the Esthetic Ant Nests (make sure to add dirt/soil in the chambers). 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.
