Re: Just a coincidence??? ID help

Also, I released the batch 40 ft away from where I found her, and I found her only five minutes after they were released. Also, does this species of ant have their nuptials flights during this time of year???

Umm... Where’s the second egg?

Hello everyone! My Camponotus subbarbatus queen just laid an egg three days ago and has been tending to it very closely, but shouldn’t she have laid a second egg by now, or am I just being to impatient... Here’s a picture of her. http://i1253.photobucket.com/albums/hh590/CatnAnts/618BC7CC-2535-4200-...

Re: Flagstaff Arizona Queens

That queen ant is actually a tetramorium immigran or aka a pavement ant. I have just recently found TONS of them because now is a popular time for them to fly, they are a good species to keep because they grow very fast unlike Camponotus.
