Re: Northeast US Nuptial flights

Hey all, I'm gearing up to begin capture of queens relatively soon, and was curious as to what I could expect and when. I know Prenolepis Imparis should be in the middle of their mating season, and I believe Camponotus season starts soon in this area. I was wondering if there is a more specific tim...

Re: Looking to adopt/purchase Pogonomyrmex in Salt Lake City, Utah area.

As the subject states I would really like to adopt a queen Pogonomyrmex barbatus/occidentalis. I would prefer the queen only or maybe a queen and a few workers. I sent my info through the GAN site but have not received a response yet. Sorry if I'm being over eager. My son and I are excited to start...

Re: I need answers about my Camponotus subbarbatus...

Okay so the other day I found a Camponotus subbarbatus Queen three workers and a couple eggs and what appeared to be her hibernation chamber. I checked earlier and it seems the eggs are gone now.

Re: Tiny Tetramoriam Queen

I caught a queen last Wednesday She laid eggs today hooray http://imgur.com/a/BBH1U Yeah, I'm not convinced that is tetramorium. Too shiny, and too roundish shaped. Teteramorium almost have more rectangular features if that makes any sense. Can we see more pictures of her? Also a measurement and lo...

Re: Any alternatives to feed ants?

What I did was I bought a container of live crickets (They are more nutritious than super worms) And then I froze them in doubled up zip loc baggies to kill them. When my colony needs one, I pop one out, break it into three pieces and stick it in their outworld.
