Lasius Niger fungus garden?

Hi, I've had this Lasius Niger colony for about 2 years and I have noticed something weird. In one of the chambers of the nest (Ytong nest) they're constantly busy with what I would imagine a fungus garden would look like. This seems unlikely to me because Lasius N. doesn't usually have them. I thou...

Re: too many queens

Lasius neoniger does not occur in Europe. Possibly L. niger as they recently had flights. Why don't you just release them? Yes neoniger doesn't live here in europe, thanks. I'm now pretty sure i have Lasius Niger and Lasius Flavus ( also alot of those colonies in my area) And I might join the GAN p...

I have still...

too many queens

Last Nuptial flight (Belgium,Flanders) i caught about 22 ant queens. I think they are Lasius Niger and Lasius Flavus or Lasius Neoniger (can't see the difference :) ) Now 18 of them have laid eggs and some even already have larvae. The problem I have is that I don't know what to do with them, i can ...

Lasius niger journal

I will start a journal on the progress of my lasius niger colony. 29 July 2015 I caught a lasius niger queen last week (around 21 July 2015) In Belgium (Flanders). She had already torn off her wings and was actively searching for a home. I put her in a test tube setup and left her for a week because...
