Lasius Queen Questions???

I'm looking for a little help raising my Lasius queens. I found 1 queen on 8/19 and 2 more on 9/05. They have not laid any eggs yet. I think they are all Lasius and I found them all in more or less in the same place. My ants were caught in the New York Tri-State area. I have them in test tubes in my...

Re: I think I found a Queen!!!

I found 2 more queens Tuesday night, 9/5/17. It rained just after I found them and it had rained all weekend. What was left of hurricane Harvey passed through the New York Tri-State area this weekend. I'm starting to think there must be a thriving colony in the park next my job now that I found 3 wi...

Re: I think I found a Queen!!!

Wow thanks guys for helping to identify my queen! This sounds like good news because I wasn't really ready to take on an ant colony. I found her out of the blue after watching videos. I think it my be easier to manage a colony of garden ants over carpenter ants my first try.

Re: Thunder Storm in NYC area

I found what I think is a carpenter ant queen on August 19th after the heavy rain we had Friday the 18th. I'm hoping to get another good storm out here to come across the river so I can try and find another queen. Do you know if the queens we find this time of the year will lay eggs this year or wil...

I think I found a Queen!!!

I am a little behind on this journal because it took a week to be approved as a new member. I am going to try and put together a decent post with as much detail as I can remember and hopefully I can keep up with it. Last Saturday I found an ant near an open window in the bathroom at my job. It rain ...
