Re: Stressed Out Ants, Is It Too Late?

Its all good! Ants are hardy, especially if they already have workers. Just put a drop of honey right outside the straw, and make sure they have a constant supply of water. Force moving them is the easiest way to kill a colony, just let them chill! And fill them up! Fat ants = happy ants! :D If they...

Re: Queen ID Washington

So I feed my Camponotus Modoc some Dubai x-small roaches tonight and they loved it. They were more active than I have ever seen them. The Moduc with 8 workers I put the roach in there alive and it was a battle! They queen even came out of her tube to check it out. Lots of posturing. Dang! LIVE!? An...

Re: Ant Watch Western Washington

Hey, I just moved to Washington State. I'm out by the Alki area. Hoping to find some pretty queens too, I did see what looked like a massive Lasius Colony moving from one lawn to another! Nice! Looking at the weather, it will probably be late April/early May before anything starts flying. If you se...

Re: Help w/ Carpenter Ant Nuptial Flights

Checking the current nest is good to find out when they will fly. If you see queens around the entrances of a nest, they are getting ready to fly. But generally you will find them while walking on sidewalks from April-Sept. I found 1 in Aug in a parking lot, and 1 in Sept on a side walk (in Washingt...
