Cellophane

Has anyone ever tried using amber or red cellophane to make the nest "dark" yet visible? Heard about this recently. Some say it works. Anyone tried it?

Re: Nuptial Flight and Finding Queens

I have been watching some of the AntsCanda videos! They are so informative! I have been binge watching!
