Re: Best substrate for AC ant tower?

Maybe you could get some springtails to add to it?

Wild Ant Queen outside Ottawa Canada? Aug 11

These were taking on the 11th of August just outside Ottawa on the Ottawa River. They were on a gravel path under the electric poles just next to a small grouping of trees. If this is a queen and I'm not confused then this queen was working with the others just like any other worker. Not overly shy,...

Re: Is formiculture down?

I think they said they were taking it down to see why it's been so slow lately and also updating a few other things. It will be down for a few days. I happened to check out the chat feature just as that was being discussed.

Hi from near Ottawa Canada

I'm a total newbie from a small town just a half hour west of Ottawa. The closest thing to ants I've had were freshwater fish when I was much younger so this is all new to me. Managed to catch quite a few queens so far and even have nantics so any advice would be great. I think I have a couple campo...

Re: 4pm ontario canada aug 9 2018

Sweet! Thanks so much, glad I got a few more :) I really wanted these guys cause I see them everyday here in the yard, they have a favorite plant to farm and a favorite post to climb so I have some nice photos of them. Just great news thanks!

4pm ontario canada aug 9 2018

Near the Ottawa River on a 2nd floor deck, found about 4 of them but this one doesn't look to great. I think I injured her, is she a queen? Can you tell? About 10mm and black. Thanks :) https://kerrilove.smugmug.com/2018-Ant-ident/n-Rg8Wh2/i-jnRkwHQ https://kerrilove.smugmug.com/2018-Ant-ident/n-Rg8...

Re: tiny night time flight ontario canada

Thanks for letting me know. First time I"ve actually seen them flying and crawling on the ground under the light. I hopefully got a few fertile queens. This one was the same time and place about the same size I think. I get a better feeling with this one but the picture isn't as good. I think this o...

tiny night time flight ontario canada

just up the Ottawa river from Ottawa, right near the river and some forest flying in the lights is it a queen or a male? I find the larger species a little easier, Even if I only get a ballpark I'd be happy. First year and I do have some promising larger speicies. Nope you can see this picture. http...

Re: Ontario rainfall watching

I live just upriver from Ottawa and I expect it to get stormy over the next few days. Expect the unexpected. We were calling for clear weather last night and we got a freak storm with a for only about ten minutes. It ended with a huge gust of wind like a tornado for about 15-20 seconds with a top wi...
