Re: Oregon/Washington Ant Sightings Post Here!!!

I caught the exact same type of queen yesterday (6/23/18 - Vancouver, WA). I couldn't tell you the species, but I'm confident that is a Camponotus sp.

Re: Oregon/Washington Ant Sightings Post Here!!!

I haven't managed to find any yet, not that I have a lot of time to look. I haven't spotted any dead alates though which bothers me. I know I have Camponotus in the area, as I see the occasional worker or major.

Re: Oregon/Washington Ant Sightings Post Here!!!

I've spotted Tetramorium sp., Camponotus sp., and some other ant I haven't identified (small, yellowish, very round abdomens) foraging around. Flights will probably start soon with the way the weather is going.

Re: Help with Oregon

I'm in Vancouver Washington. Not many ants around yet where I'm at either. I think they just haven't really started coming out, maybe due to the intense winter we had.

Re: Oregon/Washington Ant Sightings Post Here!!!

I still haven't spotted anything, but I've noticed some other insects start making their moves.

While I agree that the workers are tetramorium, queen looks like aphaenogaster
...If they are that would explain why the workers killed her, but not why I found them all in the same chamber... Is it possible she was a parasite queen?

Re: Formicarium for Temnothorax questions

I kind of want to do as LITTLE building myself as possible. I don't have a lot of supplies or even the most basic materials at my disposal, so anything I need to build would require buying all the materials separately (usually sold in far greater amounts than I'll ever need), and that usually ends ...

Interestingly I just moved from Florida a few months ago. "Cow Ants" as they get called are actually a species of wingless wasp.
