Re: Queen ID

Found another queen tonight around the same light I found the other four at. This queen is huge, 18-20 mm. Has a brownish red head and yellow body. Will get pictures up tomorrow. Lost one of the last four quens I caught unfortunately.

Re: Hello from Tennessee

I'm in alabama and found 12 queen fire ants around my driveway in the past two days. Very easy to find here.

Re: Queen ID

From what I have read Lasius interjectus is a social parasite. Not sure what needs to be done to raise them. Anyone have experience with them?

Re: Queen ID

Also would like to know species if anyone can tell, it was suggested that it may be a Lasius.

They will not stay still, close to 10 mm as far as I can tell.
