Re: Need help identifying my Queen!(if it is a queen)

I am by far NOT an expert of ant identification; however, that appears to be some sort of Formica, most likely Formica Subsericea. But, again, I’m no expert.

Southeastern Ant Club

Hello! I’ve seen many threads for specific states and such. Most threads are meant to keep up with nuptial flights, sign up for email lists, discuss cool ant stuff specific to that state; however, I see no problem with having multi-state/regional ant thread or email list.

Re: Camponotus Castaneus

Thanks for the info, man! But anything specifically about the Castaneus species in particular? I honestly am so determined to catch one that I might have a heart attack if I found one 😂😂.... so any help with finding one would be amazing!
