Re: How do I get swarming ants out of my house?

We're going to need more than that to tell what species or at least genus it is. Pictures and measurements would be nice.

Re: Uhhhhhhhhhhhh I am confused

I would like to add that the presence of Lasius niger in North America looks sketchy, and possibly could be mis-IDs of Lasius alienus . Anyways, just be patient and look around. Lasius alienus have started to fly in North America, and the other Lasius are soon to come. You just can't miss their larg...

One is on this forum, the other on Formiculture, already mentioned by Aqua. http://forum.AntsCanada.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&...

Re: Temperature in California (Bay area)

I suggest asking the anters on Formiculture-a large portion of that forum is based in Cali.
