Re: Can I Still Catch A Queen Right Now In West Virginia?

I live in New York and I caught two crematogastor queens today. I saw a third, but was not fast enough to snag it. I would say that it might be a little tough to get queens right now, but it is true that Lasius are flying now, especially Lasius Neoniger, the Labor Day ant!

Good luck hunting!

Re: Help identify these ants please!!

Idk. I don’t have something I could measure them with right now. Could I try a comparison, like putting them next to something to compare with?

Re: Help identify these ants please!!

Nice!!

The queens are very small, about the size of my thumb nail. Could they still be queens?

Re: Help identify these ants please!!

I have no idea. I just got into ant keeping, so I’m a complete noob. If that is what my queens are, is that rare or cool or something??
