Philadelphia resident here! I'm anxiously awaiting the weather to get above 65. I got a colony of prenolepis imparis from a GAN farmer, but I'd like to try to found a polygynous colony (or a few) once the flight starts. Has anyone on the forum had any luck at Marconi Plaza in South Philly? It's so nice and wooded and near water.

I think I caught one of those too but I'm not sure. I would share pics but my camera is awful.
