Camponotus planatus are indeed weird-looking carpenter ants by our standards. Very hairy! And not native to Florida.

Ok, Thanks! Wish me luck with the colony! :mrgreen:

Re: Recently obtained colony can someone ID?

Camponotus planatus I don't mean to doubt your expertise but are you sure? :| I've really never seen any Carpenter ants like those. Usually bigger and have more red in their coloring. Also, if it is that, what conditions and meals do you recommend? For example, wet or dry conditions? I also occasio...

But again, i could be wrong ;) I could see that happening but I sure hope not! :cry: I would love to see a colony as awesome as her (unless it's a him) flourish as o...

Recently obtained colony can someone ID?

I have recently (2 weeks ago) obtained part of an ant colony with what appears to be various queens and many workers. They were living in a cement (AAC?) pillar on my front porch but it seems they have various nests around the house and the ones not caught have even begun to move back into the very ...

Found an odd (maybe) queen pls ID

Hey guys! :mrgreen: Today around 2 PM I found this queen ant on my wall outside. Very odd ant. 1 cm long with a pointed head.

http://i.imgur.com/84XZira.png Minimalistic but powerful. The flame design is not unique, I know but the colour setting is different.
