Description: Pheidole pallidula is a fast growing species that produce big strong soilders. The soilders task is to cut up tough food with their large and sharp mandibles and allow workers easy access to the insides of insects. They're are a very hungry species and will take high amounts of protein. They're quick runners and will escape easily so make sure you have some good escape prevention in place! They leave the nest in groups to forage. The soilders will be called into action when they're needed! They love humidity and will often sit on damp cotton or other surfaces.
