I am so happy!

So, I don't have pics because I didn't want to piss her off any more than I did, but my Nylanderia queen with wings laid eggs! They aren't on the cotton ball, but that's probably 'cause it's a bit too humid in there. They are little yellowish specks. But, they are actually mostly in a pile. I heard ...

Re: Monomorium Queen?

Check once a week. Ok. That's what I did with my Formica queen. If she got workers within about 4 weeks, how long will these take in the same environment? She did lay eggs within the first day or two though. About a month or two, that's pretty average. Woah, really? That's pretty long saying such b...

I think I'll check on her on Monday or Tuesday. Check once a week. Ok. That's what I did with my Formica queen. If she got wor...

(Nylanderia sp.?) Journal

So, I've found out I have what is most likely a Nylanderia queen. She has wings, but refused to use them, was alone, and just was walking on pavement. Possible signs of fertility? Well, my first check up on her will be tomorrow. She was caught yesterday. If I see any progress, like wings removed, eg...

Re: Spot the mistakes!

Wow, this is actually a UK news page. It reads like an american one... Well, not entirely. An american page would have probably titled something like "YOU DON'T WANNA HAVE THESE KILLERS IN YOUR BACKYARD!" or "PREPARE FOR DOOMSDAY - FLYING FIRE ANTS GONNA KILL US ALL!". No. I don't know where you're...
