Not true at all. For example, I just caught a queen today, and a few weeks ago, caught three different species of ants. Lasius neoniger, Crematogaster lineolata, Solenopsis molesta
Raising:
-Tapinoma Sessile
Founding:
-Crematogaster Lineolata
-Solenopsis Molesta
-Lasius Neoniger

For the first time in weeks it's 70 degrees where I live. Going to go see what I can find. But I am thinking of waiting until spring to resume looking.
Looking for my first queen

If the rains hold off this afternoon keep a lookout for Prenolepis Imparis queens. I caught 8 of them last friday feb. 24th...the earliest I've ever seen them fly in southeastern pa!
