Re: Delmarva (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia) Nuptial Sightings

Caught 4 queen Pheidole bicarinata this morning in Camden, DE. Guessing they flew after saturdays thunder storms went through. I was not home this weekend so I'm glad I was able to still catch some results of the storm.

Re: I need help finding tetramorium...

I found a bunch of tetramorium queens after flight under packed down leaves that are along the edge of parking lots or in corners of tennis courts. Gently flip over the leaves and see what you uncover.

Re: Delmarva (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia) Nuptial Sightings

Hey everyone! I've been on the hunt constantly but havent had a lot of luck despite plenty of rainy/sunny days. About a week ago my wife found a camponotus pennsylvanicus alate at brecknock park in Dover. I was working so i dont know if it was part of a nuptial flight but she said it was all alone....

Re: Delmarva (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia) Nuptial Sightings

Found a bunch of queens this morning near Camden, DE. Not sure what kind yet. I have pics sent out for ID. Will let you know what kind when I find out. All the queens were the same kind so a big nuptual flight occured there last night.

is there a key to queen ant species of North America?

Greetings,
Wondering if there is a book or website that has a key to identify queen ant species of North America? I know there is a book for identifying workers to family level but I don't seem to find one for identifying queens to species.

Re: Delmarva (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia) Nuptial Sightings

I was looking at the nuptial timing chart at the following site http://www.formiculture.com/ant-mating-chart.htm Take for example the first species on the list - Acromyrmex versicolor has nuptual flights from July through October. I'm guessing this covers the whole range of where that species lives....
