I haven't had any luck. I'm hoping I'll atleast see singns of nuptuial flights happening since it'll be the first warm day after a while of cold rainy days.
How did you get your tetremorium colony?

I got into the hobby late last year and was too impatient to wait, so I got the queen with about 7 workers off of the GAN farmer here.

Hey Guys!

I actually managed to find my first two queens yesterday! It was dusk and the sun was setting and I was going for my daily ant hunt walk. They were just crawling along on the concrete. :D :D I cant wait to look for more and will be uploading some pics at some point. :lol:

Keep your eyes peeled!
