Re: Ant queen identification

Update: I can see that one of the queens has a few eggs in the tube but now it looks like there is mold growing. Of course this would only happen to the species I want to keep the most :x

I am a starter, I wonder if

Someone can let me know if this is a queen, or not
Or do we know the species. And if it is mated.
I’m still new at this, but to me, it looks like a Camponotus worker. I could be wrong though

Re: Solenoposis invicta

Hi, I know that solenopsis workers do vary somewhat in size, however I’m not sure if they are super obvious as majors like the carpenter ants. They do come in larger sizes though. Also, I live in southeast Louisiana and saw three queens last Saturday, so they are flying. We have a similar climate to...

Re: The Ultimate Burn Of Catching Ant Queens

Goodluck to you too. I live way down in Louisiana so it’s still in the 90s everyday. It took me weeks to find the first queens and the very first died. Then it was pretty much only solenopsis for a really long time. You should check the GAN project too.

Re: The Ultimate Burn Of Catching Ant Queens

Update: 4 pheidole workers escaped and I only found 1. Kinda crazy that this thread was just started and now it happened to me. Wasn’t the queen though ;) At least you caught one. I’m really upset cause it’s my first queen I've caught ever and the first I’ve seen in weeks. And I can’t find it now. ...

Workers with polygynous queen

I’ve caught 2 pheidole Queens, and I have one in a test tube setup and one in a setup with workers. I didn’t put them both in the same setup in case one or the other didn’t work. If it is recommended, I can switch this around. The workers seem to be really cool with the one queen in there and I don’...
