Description: Camponotus vagus is a jet-black carpenter ant found throughout europe. In the early days of the colony, they can be very inactive but once established, they will be very active and a joy to watch. They're an aggressive species with powerful mandibles but mainly attack upon nest disturbance. Very polymorphic meaning the workers vary in size.
