Re: Queen ID needed in Maine

Here are the other 3 ants I found under the same plank just inches away in their own little burrows. They are about 7-8mm. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/8iY1t_Tct-UiJ52YwRUq9wFslm17Iy69Hc5Wy1MbafZ_gjeo0gyvFcIHtgUqknVxhzUZyAoidJpozflJWEdWmczZlf3Yx2rPDYyqT96HEEJe1NLVLYO7dS1nrja6RWAnuiQAF_z6FucjqV2...

Re: Queen ID needed in Maine

Thanks for the ID! Any ideas about the 3 other ants in similar burrows under the same lumber only inches away. They were about half the size or less. Could they be related or just a coincidence? I will try to post a pic tonight.

Queen ID needed in Maine

Today I found this girl burrowed in the hard packed sand, under a staging plank that had been undisturbed for a couple months. She is around 10mm and light brown, almost yellowish in color. She had no eggs, but there were 3 other ants in similar burrows under the same lumber only inches away. They w...

Re: Aphaenogaster in Omni Nest Large

Thanks Antlove. I did insert the address link between img tags. I see the images in my post on this forum just fine when I am on a device logged in to Google, but if not logged in, the images do not load. Must be a sharing issue. I noticed your links are different then mine. Are you linking to my im...

Re: Aphaenogaster in Omni Nest Large

Sorry. I guess you have to be signed into a Google account to see the embedded images.
I think this link should work till I get this figured out.

Will Camponotus novaeboracensis colonies share an outworld?

I have about 6 Camponotus novaeboracensis queens in test tube setups. They were caught between mid June to mid July. 3 of the colonies now have 2-4 workers. I would like to start offering them food soon. My question is: Will they co-exist if I put a small opening in the cotton plugs and put them in ...

Re: I am back for the summer in Maine

Thanks again for your advise.
I've lived here since I was 7, now I have a grandson almost that age. And yes, you don't see "another Mainer!" often. I guess that is one of the things I love about Maine.

Re: I am back for the summer in Maine

Thanks for you input Bats. I have 5 Camponotus queens I captured last month, in test tube set ups. Hopefully I'll be more successful with them this year. If any produce workers, of course I'd feed them like they eat naturally. The one queen that survived from last summer is not Camponotus. She does ...
