Re: POSSIBLE PLAGIOLEPIS ALLUADI

From what I understand they travel and spread in potted plants. I'm seriously struggling to figure out what these are, and this is the best option so far. If you have an idea please let me know :) Plagiolepis appear to be mainly from Europe, China, Australasia regions. Very unlikely to be in Florida.

POSSIBLE PLAGIOLEPIS ALLUADI

I had a previous post farther down the forum but I didn't get a response on it. I've spent the last three days trying to figure out what kind of ants these are, and I think I may have figured it out. I believe they might be Plagiolepis alluaudi, but they could just be of the Plagiolepis genus. Hopef...

Re: Ants in Florida

Last year right at the solar eclipse we had literally millions of fire ant queens (post nuptial) roaming the city. You had to be careful where you walked. Fire ants are the only nuptial flights I've experienced here in Florida but I've also found trap jaw queens. The fire ant nuptial periods around ...

Unidentified Tiny Orange Ants

Hello everyone, I have collected this small colony, with what appears to be three queens and a dozen workers, in Florida. I have not been able to figure out what species they are and I was hoping someone with more experience could help me out. Thanks https://imgur.com/gallery/Yo2aA https://imgur.com...

Large Unknown Ant

I was walking outside and I spotted this ant. It's a species I've never seen before so I was wondering if you guys know what it is.

Re: Is it an Odontomachus queen? Or worker? THE ANSWER MAY SURPRISE YOU! please help me.

It would be good to put her in the Tupperware container so she can put her leftover food and feces out side of her chamber so it will prevent mold. It would be easier to clean up her trash if she puts her trash in the Tupperware I agree, sounds like a plan. Plus I'm pretty sure I read somewhere tha...

Re: Red Queen, Oregon

If you can't find Formica pupae for her, then no. Oh well. That sucks. Quick question for everyone. Ladies or tetra. Which would you rather keep? I meant lasius or tetra. Which of the two would you want to keep? And how do you identify ants, do you just have every species of ant memorized? Try www....

Leave her in the test tube till she has 20 workers or if the test tube gets to full of ants ts either a Odontomachus brunneus or a Odontomachus haematodus queen some queens can be polygynous but they would probably fight so dont mix the queens together.they eat insects while they are because they a...
