Let us know of your ant colonies or queens that have passed away. We will grieve together but will also learn why your ants may not have succeeded.

The myrmica queen died. I might go around trying to dig up queens from their claustral chamber on saturday, but that might have been the last queen I'll get until feb-april, when prenolepis imparis flies.

Ah, I'm sorry she died on you. You'll find another! What is your location? You might have some chances still through November!

Im in VA, but I am in a bad place to queen hunt. I may be able to find some though.

Sorry to hear that. I've had my fair share of Solenopsis queens die on me. Fortunately I usually get like 50+ when I go hunting.

Shame, only if you were in Nevada or Arizona, you could totally help us both out lol. It seems no one from Arizona is active here except myself.

That sucks. I remember when my first solenopsis queen died I was so devastated, but that was before I found like 20 more. Don't give up hope cuz I found 8 today alone.
There are more ants on the planet than humans.
I'm wondering what the dominant species really is... :o

My ant queens still founding a colony:
Brachymyrmex sp.(1)
pogonomyrmex rugosus? (1)

My ant colonies:
Solenopsis Xyloni (1)
