Re: Posible Ant queen ID

I'm very very aware of this ants sting so i will try to keep that in mind and will transfer her to a test ...

This does look a lot like Solenopsis Queen, however, I cannot ID this for sure .8 mm seems a bit small for the fire ant species. Please check to make sure this measurement is right.
Yeah 8mm... huge mistake stating .8mm lol

Id be willing to bet she's 0.8 cm not mm as stated above, making her about 8mm in length. Proper size for a solenopsis queen.
Holy... i stated 0.8 mm wow i'm a dumbass yeah 8mm sorry. My bad heh

Why...??? :( :( :( i can't wait
That you can't wait wont make them develop faster. Actually if you peek a lot at the queen she may get stressed and even eat her eggs so leave her alone for couple of weeks.
