Re: Hello all!

Welcome! Tetramorium is not polygene species. While they may tolerate each other for a while, it'll end poorly.

If you can, get her identified on the forum. Semi claustral queens are often confused with male drones.

Re: Ants infested my room

In a house, Pouring liquid everywhere isn't going to help. Diatematious earth is a safe way to be rid of them. It's perfectly harmless to humans and pets, but will exterminate the colony.
