My queen is not laying any new eggs

Hi all!

My queen is not laying any eggs.
She is still alive but won't eat anything.
She went in hibernation.
Outside there are ants running around. So I know it is time.

Please help!

Let's try it again!

My former ants colonie did not wake up from there winter sleep. Today was the first day of the prenuptial flight.

My wife rushed outside to catch them.

We stopped at 4 queens.

Think this is a lasius niger queen.

Re: What species should I look out for in the Netherlands

Hi. I found my ants near a park. I found 6 of 7 lanius negar queens. In 15min. First time looking.

Once you have 1 the rest will follow.
They are small but you will see them clearly.
Even see them fly.

Planning to go hunting this year :mrgreen:

Hope this will help.
