Re: Camponotus castaneus

Re: The AntsCanada GAN project is selling invasive ants

You guys are doing this to yourselves AC...there are us who truly think what Mikey B. has started is something special and it should follow what he sta...

Re: AntsCanada ANT FLAG CONTEST (2 yr Anniversary of ACAF)

One of the issues is that Tetramorium cf. caespitum is actually a species complex, and you have no way of knowing if two queens are the same species without genetic testing.

Re: Adopting wild ants.

I do the same at my work :D while I'm on break that is. There is a colony of Lasius alienus close to a light pole and since .y work is just miles from a river, mayflies are abundant and I snag 1 or 2 each night for them to feast. It sure helps the time pass

Let me tell you a trick with the fruit flies, put a container in the freezer for a bit, let it get super cold, then when you are ready to feed the flies, take it out ...

Re: GAN Farmers - How has your experience been?

This is the only reason I have not joined. I have many queens of which I would like to sell or trade but as far as using GAN, I'm not sure. When looking through at the ones for sale, say Texas for instance, all you see is Solenopsis invicta in various containers and so on and so forth. I think most ...
