Re: Queen ID

Yeah, this is Lasius umbratus . You should be able to use most kinds of Lasius , but most of the past successes have come from the niger-group. That spike is called the petiolar scale, and all ants from Formicinae have one. Oh, ok. What ants fly next in NYC? Found T. Sessile queen, it died. The oth...

Re: Queen ID

Lasius umbratus http://www.formiculture.com/topic/3252-much-ado-about-the-founding-of-lasius-temporary-social-parasites/ I doubt it. I believe I've had a Lasius Umbratus queen before. These girl's heads are too small and and their overall size. Their thorax is also too skinny. I still have her, but...

Re: Queen ID

She's missing her front legs, that one. Poor thing keeps on getting stuck and I have to help her. I guess she's doomed.

Re: Queen ID

Ok I just caught another one. She is sickly (gets stuck to everything), but I can photograph her. Also, I got some T. Caespitum brood. Can I feed it to one of the queens? I'm worried, because one of 'em has a mite. :geek: http://i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt211/CreeperUniverse/IMG_3269_zpsqs8jwnjl....

Okay, I'll keep being patient! They're in my closet and their test tubes are covered by a washcloth, just to be extra sure that they're in as much darkness as possible.
Any eggs? :D

Yeh I think i'll put her test tube into the test tube portal and leave a little sand in there, see how that works out.
Try to make sure the sand is moist so it doesn't spill everywhere though.
