Hi there,
Does anyone know if trap jaw ants can produce gamergates? I found a website where the writer says that they produce gamergates.

Re: Trap jaw queen alive or not?

She did not. Only some workers came out. I did not really flood them. I only poured water onto the driftwood where the water will flow straight into the nest. That will cause them to come out.

Thanks

Ant identification

Hi there
I have an ant colony but I cannot identify their species. I have noticed that they have 2 dots on their abdomen near their waist. Does anyone have any idea what their species is? Thanks! Image

Trap jaw queen ant died

Hi there
I have a trap jaw ant colony of about 10-20 workers. However, their queen died recently :cry: . Does anyone know if they will produce a gamergate or a new queen? Also, will they accept a foreign queen ant as their own queen ant so that their colony will not die off? Thanks!
