Re: Massachusetts Flight Sightings

Found a P. imparis worker foraging while snow was still in the ground about an hour ago. (Methuen) Tough little girls.

Re: Massachusetts Flight Sightings

I know. I am going walking that day and I doubt they will fly, but maybe some colonies will have been done overwintering, who knows. Last year, I've had tetramorium still foraging for some apples late into November in 40-50 degree weather. P. imparis too, though that is no surprise. A Nylanderia fl...

Re: Massachusetts Flight Sightings

It seems things are getting warmer! From now on it seems we get over 40 highs. A big improvement after the recent maurade of snow we had, though of course it will still be a while before we see any ants. Excited! Looks like we may hit 60s on Thurs which will be great. However may still be a bit too...

Re: Massachusetts Flight Sightings

Nice! I also think if that's my July 15 C. Pennsylvanicus, it may have been a mis-ID of a Formica Fusca. More from my records: Jun 29 - Temnothorax sp. Jul 1 - Tetramorium Sp E Jul 14 - Myrmica sp. Aug 11 - Dolichoderus mariae Aug 26 - Lasius Neoniger Tetramorium had at least 2 other flights, but u...

Re: Massachusetts Flight Sightings

I piled up all of the 2016 flight sightings in MA that you guys experienced. Took a while but I think it will be easy to look at a single post rather than taking the time of browsing through 26 pages of Topic. Will also be easy for the new keepers to look at, again without having to scroll through s...

Re: Massachusetts Flight Sightings

This doesn't have much to do flight wise but I was talking to my friend the other day and he said he found Pheidole by an open sandy area in the Dracut Lowell state forest once. He doesn't know much about ants but you can't mistake pheidole. This is probably helpful since we never see them here. Co...
