Re: Hello from Tennessee

Sorry I have been off this site, but good news is I have found a queen back in July of 2016, and at the present she is doing great.I am not sure what species the ants are, but she has a couple hundred workers now and still laying like crazy.

Re: colony moving

I have five more nanitics today,and the queen has laid a lot of eggs.There is three big clumps of eggs.Still trying to figure out the species.All the ants are the same size,the head and gastor are almost black with the thorax a dark red.The legs are alittle lighter red.The queen is a dark all over.

Re: colony moving

I checked in on them this morning,two of the larva are now new ants,they were walking around this morning.So this species doesn't form a case around the larva.
