Re: Colorado Nupital Flights

Re: Colorado Nupital Flights

P. imparis is actually known as 'The False Honey Pot Ant' they are not truly a species of honey pot ants if that's what your looking for. Just thought I would mention that. The reason they aren't for those who are curious is because they don't have true repletes. They turn their extra food into fat ...
