Re: Catching a queen

Well, then It can't be that hard!?!?! Just keep on walking slowly on the whitest of sidewalks you have (because you spot them muuuuch easier on white backgrounds) and you will soon find one. I live in the middle of nowhere in sweden in the forest, and beleave me, I have no sidewalks at all, hardly ...

Re: Workers not foraging too far

It is completely normal for workers of small ant colonies to not wander off far away from their nest. Also while they do not have any larvae they barely need any protein and the amount of sugars they drink are so tiny that you most likely cannot see it at all. it's very likely that they mostly come...

Workers not foraging too far

Hello! I have a setup I made for this beginning formica colony. The queen I have is a social parasite formica, so the only workers she has are stolen pupae, not her own just yet. Outside the test tube I've left a drop of sunflower seed honey, normal partially crystallized honey, and 100% pure maple ...

Re: Minot Air Force Base, ND #6

The trick, just in case anybody is wondering, is to keep track of any raiding species like Polyergus or Formica from the sanguinea group. July, when most Formica social parasites are flying, is the same time of year that those raiding species are out stealing the brood of their Formica host species...

Yup! That's Formica. The Formica parasite queens usually start hording them the moment they are discovered.
Awesome! Should I get more pupae? I managed to get these using the trick you taught me, and I looked back this evening and are still raiding! Must be from a big formica colony.
