Tetramorium are still active, believe it or not.

I was in a young hardwood forest with a lot of leaf litter, and I lifted a rock and there was a queen! Sadly, I lost her in some leaf litter but it looked like an Aphaenogaster queen. Does anyone know if they lay eggs after hibernation? She was all alone under there aside from some Isopod friends hehe.

Why did the warm weather have to leave? I was getting all ready for anting season to start and then we went back to 2 weeks of cold :cry:

Yeah too bad. Had a feeling that wouldn't last long.

It won't be too long now though!
