Re: New Zealand nuptial flights

Hi I'm in Australia (right next to you guys!). I'm so thrilled to hear that nuptial flights are occurring, because that means I'll see them soon too!

Edit: I would have gone to ant keeping depot to get stuff but due to COVID I don't think it's safe. I will see what I can find

Re: Best escape prevention?

Ok, how long does it last, and will you need to evacuate the ants every time you reapply it (if you need to at all)?

Re: Toronto June/July Queen Ant Identification Help Please

It’s build is very similar to Camponotus aenopilosus so I’m guessing it’s Camponotus. I don’t think we get the other species in Australia so I can’t be sure.

Re: Toronto June/July Queen Ant Identification Help Please

Thank you for actually bothering to show an image. I think you’re right about the Camponotus. The stocky build and the size. Hope I was right.

Drugstore? I never knew what people call those in America! It’s nice to know some new language!

Hello from NSW, Australia

I am a new ant keeper in Australia and I’m really looking forward to joining the ant keeping community. I already have 1 colony (new) and I am enjoying the hobby.

Re: Lost my first ever queen ant

Yes it can be hard. I had an r.metallica male. Thought it was a queen. It died and it was quite devastating with that being my first catch.

Re: Best escape prevention?

Thanks. I heard that too much alcohol can kill the ants. Is this true?
