Re: OH-KY-IN-IL-MI Nuptial Flight Sightings

Has anyone seen any Trachymyrmex Septentrionales ants in northern Kentucky? They're the northernmost fungus growing ant, with some even spotted in New York, but they're small and rare.

About a week ago, I was cleaning out my pond and I noticed a tiny ant floating on the surface of the water. I scooped it out and noticed that it had all the attributes of a queen (large gaster and a more pronounced, muscular thorax). It was so small I couldn't see wings scars, but a few days later, ...
