Re: Australian Queen Ant Identification

I wana say iridomyrmex purpureus, but the top view image throws me off a little and they normally fly in December. 100% a queen, others are queens as well.

Re: Diet question

When they get nanitics wait 2-5 days, and then try feed them a drop of honey and a cricket leg or small crushed roach

Re: Tips for Catching a Queen (Rural Areas)

try turn on all house lights and check every 10-20 minutes. This works best after some rain. I did this and i got lots of small queens. I also found my camponotus like this.

Re: Formicarium? Queen? HELP

The spam bots ruined it. Personally I think AC should publicize the forum through his videos, I've been watching them and keeping ants for 3 years and I didn't know about the forums till about a month ago.
I agree. He doesn't advertise his forum enough.

Re: What is this tiny queen ant???

how big is she, a close up side angle and which state/territory you found her in would help. If i were to guess i would say tetramorium sp.

kinda looks like this:https://imgur.com/a/gXeAkDu
