I doubt it's Lasius Neoniger as there flights run through September and October. Unless you caught it last year of course. But to be sure, you should get an ID confirmation.
Perhaps pallitarsis?

Re: A colony restored (AntsDakota's Brachymyrmex queen continued)

I decided to reintroduce the queen into the colony. She was groomed instantly. I will keep the colony exposed to the light for a week. (Just in case)

Anyone have experience with Formica lasioides? (And a journal)

I recently acquired a small Formica lasoides colony from a friend with 1 worker. That was actually a result of a brood boost. She has 4 pupae, one of which is ready to hatch. I believe she ate her eggs before she was given to me, but I hope she lays more soon. Are they polygynous? Is there anything ...

I'm not super gifted in ID's yet tho What is it that makes you say this is not a tetramorium? Trying to learn ;) For one thing, Tetramorium are always a lot bigger than Solenopsis...

That thing is Solenopsis molesta? I knew that their queens came in many varieties, but black and red?

Re: Questions About Colony Sizes

As far as I am aware. Colonies that have gamergates and not actual queen generally do not have big colonies so there is less competition from newly hatched workers and less ground to cover when trying to remove gemi from the new workers.

Re: How do you tell Lasius americanus (alienus) from brevicornis (flavus)?

I recently mastered how to distinguish Lasius neoniger and americanus (The new name for the North American Lasius alienus) queens and was wondering how to tell Lasius americanus from brevicornis (The new name for the North American Lasius flavus). My lack of insight on this genus has led me to mis-...

Are all hybrid nests being remodeled?

The Pogonomyrmex, Myrmica, and Solenopsis hybrid nests are not listed on the store anymore. Are they being remodeled into 2.0s too?
