Re: Species ID Request. United States - Arkansas - caught Jul 22

I would agree with a worker, but don't release her quite yet till you have a few more answers.

Re: Ants In Massachusetts. When do I catch them?

Camponotus are super suceptible to stress, so honestly the best thing you can do is leave her alone for a few weeks (not even a peek) and then see her progress

Re: Queen spreading her eggs randomly

Honestly I really think giving her food would just stress her out further. The very best thing you can do is leave her alone for several weeks (not even peeking) and check on her then.

Re: Ants Escaping Vertical Omninest

Hmm. There may be a defect. Also you may find that your ants will be able to cross vasaline in the future. The only thing I have found that works for my Tetramorium Immigrans is DRY baby powder (no rubbing alcohol.) I haven't tried fluon but I imagine that works as well. You may not have any escapes...

Re: Ants Escaping Vertical Omninest

Its more likely that there is a problem with your outworld barrier or tube connections. What barrier are you using? Im sure if your omni is actually letting the ants escape then AC will get in contact with you,

Re: Queen spreading her eggs randomly

Spreading the eggs does not mean that she is unfertile, just like queen ants shedding their wings is not proof.
