Re: Help Identifying 4 Queens

One of my Queens from #1 has unfortunately died. All is well though, it happens. I have many others of this species and another queen has adopted her eggs. On the bright side it has given me the chance for better photos for identifying it. https://i.imgur.com/7GLsXfRr.jpg https://i.imgur.com/QdB1N2N...

Strange Discovery

So I was walking around the woods looking for queen ants when a large worker ant caught my eye. I noticed she was walking kinda funny and she looked like she was carrying something in her mouth, which is always interesting to see, so I bent down to take a closer look... Here's what I saw: https://im...

Re: queen ant randomly died?

She probably ingested pesticide before you caught her. I caught two queens in the same area and both died mysteriously after a few minutes, I later discovered that it was because the area I caught them in was treated with pesticide.

Re: Queens trying to escape test tubes

Ah, I see. At first I thought they might be suffocating or something due to the way a couple of them were frantically trying rip through the cotton. Thank you for setting my mind at ease.
