Re: queen ant id, please

I think most Brachymyrmex are polygynous, although don't go mixing established colonies.

Re: Disturbing claustral queens

Yes, just leave her alone in a suitable enclosure for as long as she needs.

Re: Need Help identifying my Ant

Post an ID request in the designated section. We'll need measurements (in millimeters), location (to at least the state/province, or alternatively major city), and clear pictures of the ant, The best way to take these would be one of the front, side, and top of the ant.

Honestly, if the workers seem restless and they have enough resources, it probably means they are looking for their queen.
I disagree there. Ants will often act this way when stressed, not necessarily because of a lack of their queen.

Re: To many Queens?

Releasing your queens is basically a death sentence. If they have already found a place to nest, laid eggs, and have larvae, the chances of their survival are slim.

Re: Ants as pollinators

There are some, but not many, plants that rely on ants to disperse seeds. In the eastern US, one of the more common ones is a wildflower called bloodroot.

Re: Getting ants to move out of a bucket

These are Aphaenogaster, by the way.


Provide better living conditions or move the wood from the bucket into a formicarium's outworld.
