I didn't see a forum topic for Colorado antkeepers so I figure we can post stuff here! I hope there are others from Colorado on this forum. Post updates about any nupital flights you see or queen ants you catch and hopefully we can help eachother out!

I will definitely post anything I find. I have noticed that the ants in my area are becoming active rather fast.

Saw the first nuptial flights in Westminster, CO. They were just termites unfortunately, but still was cool to see. :lol: :?
