Re: Ontario Sightings

I'm outside of the GTA near Oshawa and Durham. I have found four parasitic lasius Queens and two days before that I found Four camponotus novaeboracensis Queens.

Re: Lasius flying near Toronto

Hey there, sorry it's taken me so long to sign back in! Life's been busy and I had a lot of ants to see to. On further inspection the species flying were L. flavus and L. lapites that night, not niger or neoniger. I just didn't get a good look at them until today as I didn't want to stress them. I'm...

Lasius flying near Toronto

They are out in numbers right now. It looks like niger and/or neoniger and some social parasite which I believe may be lapites. If anyone's been looking now's a good time!
