New from Cincinnati Ohio

Super excited to join up. New enthusiast here in Cincinnati. My son (5 years old) and I started with a gel colony a few months back. Since day one his interest and scientific mind went into motion. He and I have since built our first outworld setup and have been searching for queens locally. In fact our first catch has been in her testube setup for a week and we are going to check her out for the first time on father's day tomorrow. Anyway, that's our story look forward to joining the community. Hello all!
Ant love for ever from Cincy!

Yay! Welcome to the forum!
Proverbs 6:6-11

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Awesome! good to hear theres another ant keeper in Ohio. Even if you live on the opposite side of the state lol. But if you ever make it up to the Cleveland area I have a couple of camponotus queens I could trade.

Not sure if anyone will see this but finally figured out how to post pics through Google photos. The first three pics are the same queen (when I found her and a couple more recent w workers). Originally i thought tetramorium but i am not so sure. The next three photos are two camponatus queens I rescued from a firepit. The one w workers I am told is pennsylvanicus. The other I have not had confirmation of. Pic #7 is a crematogaster with workers. And the last two pics are of three queens I found last week and have no idea what they are.

I am sorry for image quality issues as I am using a camera phone lol. If anyone does stumble back onto this post and has any info or identification for any of my queens I would appreciate the help. Thanks all!

Ant love 4ever!
