Nylanderia

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.

My very first queen died.... :-( I left her alone for a few days and came back to her knocked out :-(


She still had her wings when I found her so I took the chance with fingers crossed ....


Welp should be more queens showing up soon! ... hopefully the next ones I find will turn out better.


Ant love forever!

Sorry to hear that. My 5 queens I found were social parasites from what we know :( But, I caught one Nylanderia with wings. She was walking, didn't use her wings, and was alone on pavement. Hoping she's fertile!

Checked on her, this is week 4. She still has a pile of something. Some look larger than others though. I'm hoping for workers within 2 weeks.
