Re: ID this queen please

It could just as well be Camponotus modoc. Actually probably that. Notice the red legs.

Re: Newbie Conversation

Test tubes from Lake Charles Manufacturing are very very cheap. Get those if they can ship to your area. 16 x 150 mm tubes should be fine. I personally like glass ones better.

Re: Is this a Queen ant ?

It's becuase Photobucket doesn't alow 3rd party hosting anymore. Use Imgur and use the direct link (like Photobucket) when you upload.

And don't forget to measure your ant, preferably in mm.

Re: How do I get swarming ants out of my house?

Re: Uhhhhhhhhhhhh I am confused

I would like to add that the presence of Lasius niger in North America looks sketchy, and possibly could be mis-IDs of Lasius alienus . Anyways, just be patient and look around. Lasius alienus have started to fly in North America, and the other Lasius are soon to come. You just can't miss their larg...
