Wow, where do you get all this info from?
The only sources which indicate that C. pennsylvanicus is found elsewhere are dubious, isolated records on maps, but every written resource says they are replaced by C. modoc west of the Rockies.

It's Camponotus, but C. pennsylvanicus is only found in Eastern North America.
Actually, C.Pennslvanicus can be found all over North America.
Camponotus pennsylvanicus is only found east of the Rocky Mountains. The specimens west of there are likely misidentified Camponotus modoc.

Re: AntsDakota's Ponera pennsylvanica colony

What are you feeding the Ponera?

Also, bright red head? That doesn't sound like C. herculeanus. Maybe you should do an ID request.

Re: 5/25/18-Parma/MI/USA- Unwanted workers in child swing

Crematogaster sp.

Although they belong to the Myrmicinae subfamily consisting of many stinging ants, Crematogaster have evolved a different strategy and use their stings to spread an odorous repellent instead of cause injury. I'll bet there is a colony living in whatever the swing is attached to.

Re: Worker ant identification

Aphaenogaster sp.

Aphaenogaster are "fully" claustral -- the ones that aren't social parasites, at least.

Re: Will my idea work?????

What material is it? plaster of paris. It has had a problem with mould before i painted it I don't think there's anything wrong with plaster, although hydration can be an issue since it is absorbed so well by the material. Sometimes I feel that it's more about limiting the rate that water is soaked...
