Re: Lasius Niger

Lasius Niger will lay eggs, and develop their first workers before hibernation. Unlike Lasius neoniger.

Re: ants diet

My ants don't eat superworm for whatever reason. They like mealworms, however.

Re: should I feed my newly caught lasius neoniger queen?

Don't substitute auger water for water in a test tube. It will make it moldy. Plus, she sometimes just needs water.

Re: when should I hibernate my lasius neoniger queen?

Cool, I also live in south dakota! I like to hibernate them earlier, so they can wake up in like December, and get an early start to the year.

Re: Will's Camp. Pennslavanicus and Camp. Noveboracensis

Perhaps some chemicals in the formicarium killed them... Did you use any silicone or anything?

Re: Parasite Queen?

Or Lasius neoniger. Very interesting behavior. Are you sure she wasn't the original founding queen?

Re: Parasite Queen?

That is not a parasitic queen. Looks like possibly Lasius alenius.

Re: Need Help To Find Out What Queen Species I've Got

Likely Lasius Niger. Where was this queen found?

Re: Black and red ant - Utah - August 2015

I concede. Yes, that us a formica. Confusing however, as it is very similar to a Camponotus sp. Here.
