Re: Aphaenogaster sp. Got my first ant colony

You probably got this information about the desert Aphaenogaster. The forest-dwelling ones would actually prefer some moisture. Do you have a formicarium for them?

Re: Please ID this ant! Australian Queen!

Can't tell from the photos, but she does have the looks of Iridomyrmex.

Re: Is it okay to feed my ants feral ants

Fruit flies are all the colony needs at this point. Feeding them wild ants is risky.

Re: Please ID this ant

Polyrhachis sp.

Semi-claustral setups are exactly the same, except you leave the test tube open in a foraging arena. You'll need to provide insects and sugary liquid throughout the founding stages.

Re: No ants in my area

Hey I was wondering is it okay to dig up a ant colony and grab the queen and as many workers as you can? I was wondering more in the moral and immoral perspective. Go ahead with invasive species. Leave mature, native colonies alone. What about with immature native colonies that are extremely common...

Re: Just Caught a Ant In Texas... FIXED LINKS

Solenopsis invicta. I am assuming it is ~9mm long? Always include a measurement!!!

Re: 03/23 Hungary Queen(?) and other workers ID please

No luck for the species. The queen is Myrmica, which are nearly impossible to ID with basic photographs. The Lasius would need much more detail as well.
