Description: Camponotus auriventris is an exotic species of carpenter ant from Asia. Unlike many other Camponotus species, this species is most active in the day time and will forage rarely and in decreased numbers at nightfall. This species can nest in soft old rotten wood or in soil. Their nest entrance mainly has one entrance and exit and is guarded heavily by the major castes. This species of Camponotus produce major ants relatively young. They're an aggressive species of ant and will even try to pinch your fingers! The minor caste of workers will fail to do so but the majors may be able to produce a little pinch. The shiny glimmer on the gaster is very eye-catching.
