It would also be helpful if you have any images of them. Capturing and photographing workers, drones, and alates is a good idea.

Re: Idea for Camponotus formicarium -- will this work?

First of all, I don't think there's any need to think of formicarium ideas yet. Once you catch your queen, it will still take probably a year before they'll need a formicarium. The cork might not mold, but that's definitely a risk. The ants would probably just dig into it and make their own nest ins...

Re: Feed your queens!!

IMO queens should only be fed if they're not laying. It's not natural.

Oh, thanks. I thought that they normally die after mating. Do you know what species is it?
How big is it, and did you get any pictures from the side? I'm just gonna guess Solenopsis from the color but I have no idea how big it is.

Re: New to ants - UK

Sure! You'd probably want ants that like arid climates though, especially if you're going to use sand.

Re: Queen wont lay eggs

What species is she? You seemed to have gotten her pretty late. She should've already started hibernating around the middle of the month, and she should be taken out in March. If you can include some more pictures so I can ID and observe, it would help. Again I have no idea what the species is, so I...
