Hey guys, just thought I'd let you know that I'm finding queens now in Phoenix Arizona! I'm. It sure what type of ant they are, but they are super small, smaller than a fruit fly. So far I have caught 13 males and 2 females, not sure if they are mated yet or not. Let me know what you have found!

When you find out what species they are, can you let us know. And if they are mated, can you also let us know if your selling them and at what cost?

I've seen more ant-tivity lately. Just a few weeks ago I saw a Young pavement antcolony in my backyard and it had 2 ants outside it
When I placed honey for them. Today without honey I saw 7 worker ants outside the nest. I think nuptial flights are approaching; I am so excited.
I've been doing the same thing recently, I found 6 ants outside of a small nest, left a dead Dubai roach for them and the next morning there were dozens! You can see some time lapse videos of them on my YouTube channel: AntVault

Hey Michael Jones, I'm not sure if the one I was talking about earlier are mated or not but I found out they are Rover Ants. I did find 5 queens from a polygenic Pharoah Ant colony. If interested in purchasing a couple just let me know. Id probably let them go for $5-10 each
