Re: Need help identifying

If they survive they will do entirely too well. Their colonies are amazingly fast growing and easy to get out of control. The queens pretty much lay around the clock.

Re: Need help to ID this specific Camponotus

For your area, subject B could be C. herculeanus. Subject A, because of the behaviour in the pile of sticks and twigs seem more likely to be Formica obscuripes, Western thatching ants.

Re: Is that a lasius niger?

There are a number of Lasius sp in Israel but neither of them apper to be niger or neoniger. There is a useful document here. The pictures are not clear enough to allow a 100% identification.

Re: Camponotis queens WA

The size is about right for laevigatus, and in some pictures she is quite shiny. She has the reddish legs as well.

Re: At what temperature do formica fusca queens stop hibernating?

When you start seeing insects outside, your ants will start waking up on their own unless they are chilled. Some ants are working outside already and it is only about 10 degrees C

Re: Queen Feeding

Some of mine will eat some chicken cat food, and most of them liked the inside of MacDonald's chicken nuggets. :lol:
