Good luck with finding some queens!

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...

Re: BULL ANT QUEEN OR NOT A QUEEN?

Hey man From my experience, which is little (I'm a novice myself) it appears to be. If it doesn't die soon (which would mean that it is a drone) then it definitely is, only queens and drones have wings. I'd say wait for a more experienced ant keeper to give the tick or cross, but there is nobody onl...
