Ooooo, fungus growers, nice! I think I've gotten what I need this summer, the formica ravida queen. I just need to find pupae.

The sandier counties in Southern Indiana should work. Here in Indy, they've been known to nest in well-drained, losse, clay soils. I guess that somewhere in Posey County they can be found.
