Re: Sick Ant? And Identification!

I just wanted to say I have seen the queen ant in the colony, is it possible that this is a second queen? And if anyone else has any input on the species? I live/they were caught just outside of Boston Massachusetts

Re: Ant Identification and Help

Thank you all! Any ideas for the egg laying issue? I am keeping her in an unair conditioned room in a dark box. I have a bad habit of checking on her every 2 days, her bottle is also getting slightly moldy.
