Nice! I'll sell some on the gan, I'll give u a discount since you aren't a complete stranger :lol: . For some wierd reason, I caught a tetramorium queen today as well. And btw, what you think is lasius may be prenolepis, they look very similar. I got three two and one queen setups for the imparis right now. I also found out that there are camponotus semitestaceus and camponotus vicinus right across the street :D
I currently have 17 P. Imparis queens and 1 tetramorium queen in founding.
My supposed Lasius queen is black/brown

Just caught a Prenolepis imparis queen haha. And I'm pretty sure that the "Lasius" queen is actually Prenolepis cause in the light they have almost identical color.
