Hello people of ac, this is for all Australian ant lovers who are finding it hard to find ants. I find that the iridimrmex queens start flight when it's nice and hot with not much humidity, and I find them most commonly on path ways around the street where there's lots of medium high grass. Hope this was helpful. Thx antsRlife out.
founding queens:
x2 componotus consobrinus
x1 iridimrmex bicknelli
x5+ Linepithema humile
x1 unknown queen (either phiodole or camponotus)
