hey ac family, i hope this is helpful for all you Australians, so camponotus consobrincus is more commonly known as the banded sugar ant flys around 8pm-10pm after a hot humid day in the open, you can easly see them flying around.

Have they been flying recently? I caught 6 Camponotus Lownei Queens recently, but I haven't seen any activity around the wild Consobrinus workers in my area.
