Re: Two questions

This is my first season and I have only found brachymyremex sp. and a RIFA queen. I find that I have the best luck a couple hours before the rain to an hour or so after. As far as a place to keep them... I have some in my garage and some in my air conditioned room (about 15 total). I find the ones i...

Brachymyremex Patagonicus

I caught about 18 Brachymyrmex Patagonicus queens the other day. As an experiment, I combined them in groups of 1, 2, and 3. Is this combining of queens a feasible concept for this species? I tried some research on my own to no avail. Any insight into the species is appreciated.

You can call it Brachymyrmex cf. patagonicus, which means that it resembles that species, but that you were unable to match/verify it.
Cool. Thanks for your help guys.

Re: Identity help - South FL - 6/10/18

There are two darker Brachymyrmex spp. in that area and we wouldn't be able to tell them apart from this picture. Is there a specific thing that I should try to focus on for a better picture? Sufficient detail to see the hair coverage on the body. This was the best i could get today http://i65.tiny...

1000000% Brachymyremex Patagonicus.They Spin Coocons. I have five of these. I caught them all within about a 7 square foot area. I think I saw a video from Ender ants where he founded a colony with two queens of this species. Would it be advisable to try this as well, or should I just put them in a...
