Re: Going nuts on Crematogaster!

Meaning viewed from the side. https://imgur.com/a/jdzxl Best ones I can get with my camera. Though I can tell you that with my eyes I didn't see any visible hairs like you can with some ants. Pretty sure it's Crematogaster lineolata . I've seen them in the yard, they're 100% Crematogaster, pitch bl...

Needs to be detailed enough to see the hairs on her thorax. A profile view is ideal.
Don't know if I can get that, but I'll try. And by what angle do you mean profile?

Re: About GAN (Partially wrong forum but I am needing help)

Horrible news now. The colony was sold and I'm currently waiting for a response for another camponotus colony, and if not that, someone has 4 tetramoriums. My Nylanderia colony also died today and I don't see the queen. Just scattered brood and dead workers :cry: Sorry to hear about your Nylanderia...

Going nuts on Crematogaster!

Thought I was real late for them, but freaked out when I found a nice healthy queen in my building's backyard yesterday. I know it's definitely Crematogaster, but don't remember the species it could be. It was found in NYC 9/14/17, in the afternoon (Around 2:30-3:00 P.M.). Here's the video I made on...

Yes hey have a queen but today I coincidentally fought a argentine queen walking along an ant trail and I noticed that she and a couple workers I caught were larger than the ones in my colony so I think the fir...

Re: About GAN (Partially wrong forum but I am needing help)

Looks like they are pretty backed up on GAN emails. I suggested they add another person in to better handle the load. I believe that will take place now and that response times will improve. Thanks for letting us know!! I got a response, thanks :D Oh good! Horrible news now. The colony was sold and...

Re: About GAN (Partially wrong forum but I am needing help)

I'm checking with the GAN people to see what the exact process is, how many people check the inbox, how frequently they check the inbox, etc. I'll PM ya too so you can pass it on to them if they have time. Looks like they are pretty backed up on GAN emails. I suggested they add another person in to...
