camponotus pennsylvanicus

Try 2 5/9/2018 I found 4 queens on 5/4/2018, and 1 on 5/5/2018. checked on them today and 4 out of 5 laid 2 to 4 eggs. The one that didn't lay eggs is the one I caught on 5/5/2018. There was one escape on 5/4/2018 but I found her after a while. If there are any tips I would be happy to receive them.

Re: Pennsylvania and Nearby Locations Nuptial Flight Sightings Thread

Yesterday caught 4 Camponotus pennsylvanicus queens. I've been DYING to find Camponotus queens. What kind of area did you find them in?
