Re: Ant Queen Identification

Hello! Is this the same female you posted about on the 2nd? the photos didn't work or you didn't post any. Looks like the same problem this time. I was referred to imgr.com for a good place to store and link pics by Hawkeye a couple of months ago and it really helped. As far as taking care of them, ...

Re: Found in British columbia Canada

Hello, if I may venture a guess, I'd say Camponotus Pennsylvanicus, judging by the distribution shown in antwiki and antweb...
You said you've had her for " a while", did you catch her in July? That would further support Camp/Penn.

Re: Possible Queen Identification.

My apologies if you've already said where you are located, but that would be a big help.

Re: Help with species identification?

Hello! We're in the Gatineau area, we caught a lot of Lasius neoniger and they have that golden fibre on their gasters. Check out our post "this is a lasius neoniger right???" post for reference.

Re: Queen ant?

Hello Lucas! Has anyone recommended imgur to you? Hawkeye helped me out by getting me to upload photos to a free account there which was fast and easy to set up (sounds like an ad, lol!)

Re: Queen Ant ID Help

I noticed the elongated thorax and came across genus Temnothorax. They are present in your area and I looked at their nuptial flight schedule in North America and it is between May and September. Just a guess but I hope this helps.
