Re: Hopes and dreams riding on a single Crematogaster Queen

i got into ant keeping the same sort of way. i had an anonychromyrma queen land on my knee, at the time i didn't know until it bit me :shock: i grabed it by the wings and threw it(metaphorically speeking) into a test tube and i had a great colony until they died a few weeks ago :cry:

Re: What is your queen catching methodology?

The way i like to find queens are to study nests that i know are getting ready to fly, then once i see a nest fly i will often wait 10-15 min so i don't get a high chance of getting un fertile queens, thats how i look.
