Hello to anyone subscribed to this journal.

This is a little update on myself: I have gotten into beekeeping. Last year, I made my first attempt with 2 hives, and I am trying again this spring. Right now I'm a junior in high school and I want to teach biology.

I may or may not start another journal, but I will be raising a C cerasi queen I caught last summer. I think I will come back to this forum periodically simply because I enjoy the community.

Ant love! Cheers!

Crematogaster sp.
I wish I could find Crematogaster.

I hope that Formica social parasite in the last post is ok...
Ooohhh, that's what they were. That is probably why they were such cotton-pullers too. . . nope, she didn't make it to Winter.

Wow Will, nice job at your queens! Right now it's December, so there aren't any queens around so i am waiting for late spring and summer. :) Good luck with your Lasius neoniger and Camponotus colonies! :D
Thank you! I woke up my 80-member Formica colony a few weeks ago and they have been doing fine. The 4 queens are not producing eggs yet, but they probably will soon. I woke up the rest of my ants yesterday. I will feed them their first meal in about 3 months soon.
Good luck catching queens this year!
I love keeping Formica too!

And all three of us South Dakotans are on the same topic!

I have been dreaming about that. Mabey I would keep a species that doesn't grow very large colonies (if you call them colonies) such as the bumble bee.
