Weather was decent and I spent about hour looking for queens last night. No luck, just one salamander!
I've been going on daily walks, a lot of ant activity, but no alates yet! Soon! Its been feeling like queen weather, just a little to cold I think at this point. Hopefully soon we can get reliably into the 60s!

60s and 70s next week, get your gear ready.

1 Formica sp. Queen today. 6 PM Ravensdale, 65 F.

I also saw multiple males on the outside of the thatch ant nests. I would guess they will fly this week.
