Re: Can I, should I, and how? Polygynous

All collections for F. rufa in the New World are dubious, or probably mistaken. There are look-alikes in North America.

Re: To many Queens?

I disagree wholeheartedly. If you do not think you can handle seven colonies of Formica, then I recommend finding somebody willing to take them. Never release ants back into the wild.
