Re: Force Fertilizing a Queen?

Again, unfertilized queens shed their wings and lay eggs too, they just can't produce workers. We also don't know how many of these mated before you caught them.

Re: Todays queen catch in Sweden - ID?

I would think more along the lines of Formica pratensis, based on the dull pilosity (hairiness) of the gaster.

Re: ID Queen Ant

I agree with Tetramorium immigrans, but the Camponotus will require better light. Too far west for Camponotus pennsylvanicus.

You have to upload to an image host site (like imgur and flickr) and link to it here.

So there is no way that I could form a colony with it right?
Not without host workers introduced through one of the procedures I listed. Not impossible, though.

Re: Queens, New York - 6.18.2018 (No Pun Intended)

The second queen is Tetramorium immigrans, but I would ask for brighter pictures of the first.

Re: Greetings and Identifying my Queen

Looks like Lasius emarginatus to me.
