Yeah I've done that experiment with this species. Did not go well. One of the queens will for sure die, and the other will most likely be injured or killed.
Oh man
Some species it works with, but not this one :)

I am way interested if you still have them! If so shot me an email at sper.dako@gmail.com
You should probably PM him, otherwise it won't notify him.

Idantgirl! Have any queens for sale?
No, I'm not part of the GAN project. I also haven't been collecting more queens than I need this year, so I don't have any extras :) Good luck hunting! It is likely that you can catch a Lasius Neoniger this September!

Re: Eggs Rotting?

Thanks! Checked in last night and low and behold, I had 5 little niantics scurrying about the queen. Strangely enough I found them so adorable. Will give them till the end of the week so that they can harden, and introduce the AC Portal with some honeydew surrogate. Not sure which formicarium I wil...

I live in New Jersey and I am moving an hour and a half away to Pennsylvania.
Hmmm.... Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but technically it is illegal to transport queen ants across state lines, even if that species is present in the other state...

I think she is a Camponotus noveboracensis too. She is about a half inch. Any idea as to how long on the young to be workers?

Re: Ants in Idaho (USA)

Hey bloodvulcan! I live in Idaho to and I am trying to find my first queen! Any suggestions? What area are you in? I'm not sure if bloodvulcan is still active, but I live in the boise Area.

Re: Test Tube Problem

Do not try to add water to old tubes. Instead, make a fresh tube and connect the opening of the new tube to the opening of the old tube with scotch tape. Use a pin to prick tiny air holes where the two tubes meet. ( make sure there isn't a spot where the ants will get stuck on the tape) They may jus...
