Re: Found 5/26/19 in Kill Devil Hills NC. Queen? Camponotus?

I'm not at all familiar with USA ants (Australian) so i wouldn't have a clue as to the species. However, i can make a judgment on if it is a queen. The image is pretty blurry so i cant be certain but it might be a queen, the proportions are similar to some iridomexmex queens here. If you want to kno...

Re: please help me to identify my ant

Most queens have a smaller head in regards to their body, also look for small wing scars along the middle section of the possible queen. these are remains of where her wings used to be before she ripped them off!

Good luck and happy anting!

Re: Is This Even a Queen? (Beginner)

Hey Dude, i think this is a ground wasp, just from the shape of the head and abdomen. Not sure though, if it starts laying eggs then it would be a queen ant.
If you want to find a queen ant there are lots of tutorials online, i'd have a look at them!
Good luck and happy anting!

Re: Monomorium eggs differ.....why?

That is the different stages of development. It is not actually different eggs types. The first round white/yellow eggs are eggs. The ones with black spots are actually larvae, the second stage in an ant's development. The ones that are transparent and look like ants are pupae, some species have the...

Re: Ant Identification? Is this even a queen?

Good way to see if it is a drone is if it can still fly.
After the queens mate they shed their wings (not always but most of the time).
Even if they don't shed their wings they can no longer fly.

Re: Ant Identification? Is this even a queen?

I don't live in NYC so I don't know any of the species there.
But, it does look like a drone to me.
I would post it on formiculture.com to get an id from someone who actually lives there.
Good luck with finding some queens!

Re: Not sure if she's a queen, but she appears to have a hump.

Hey man, its very difficult to tell from the pictures, but I think it might be. To check, have a really close look at it and see if it has "wing scars" on the hump. these are the spots where the wings used to be, sometimes they even have a little bit of wing still attached! If you want to find out t...
