Re: Help with camponotus ligniperda/herculeanus

My ligniperda colony was very forgiving when it came to disturbances; I even dropped their test tube once :? . Now they are a few hundred workers strong.

Definitely Camponotus, but not sure on the exact species.

Re: My best guess is Camponotus

Maybe Tapinoma? Size is right, and they are flying here in Europe.

Re: My best guess is Camponotus

Where are you from? That would really aid in identification. Also, that petiole doesn't look like Camponotus.

T. nigerrium caught 04/09/19 Spain

Yesterday, I caught a Tapinoma nigerrium queen at about 1 o'clock on a sunny day after a rain shower. Also saw at least two Linepithema humile queens running around. A question; does anyone have information on keeping Tapinoma nigerrium? ie. egg to worker?

Re: Tetramorium????????????????

Here in Germany I caught a Tetramorium queen in late May and another one about a week ago, both at about 10 o'clock in the morning. I would keep your eyes peeled right around now.
