Re: Formicarium for Temnothorax questions

I have two tarheel ants setups and they work really well, I have a temnothorax isolated in an outworld he made with their nest being in a pinecone I also placed in there(they came in it) I really like his work and you might be able to contact him and ask him if he can make a temnothorax specific for...

You have to either dig them up or find them on the surface while their spreading the colony. This is due to them latin in the nest. Where do you find Argentine ants in colorado?
There are a bunch in the Westminster and Louisville area... they can often be found near pogonomyrmex mounds

Re: Colorado Nupital Flights

Hi all, I don't know if anyone still is paying any attention to this thread but does anyone know how to catch an Argentine Ant Queen? I've been trying really hard and I can't seem to find any, so I'm thinking that maybe I'll go and try to dig one up because they're invasive...

Thoughts?

It seems they don't have nuptial flights so I couldn't catch them then and I have never seen a queen just walking along the surface.. :/ Please ...

A couple of them flew off after about half an hour I'm not sure what this was and if they were fertil...
