I'm hoping for it! I'm in Central New York and we got big storms last night as well. Have you seen any Lasius neoniger queens out yet, I'm hoping to get a few!!! This is my first year ant keeping!
Yeah I have already caught a bunch, if you end up not catching any i will be posting them to GAN :D

Philadelphia resident here! I'm anxiously awaiting the weather to get above 65. I got a colony of prenolepis imparis from a GAN farmer, but I'd like to try to found a polygynous colony (or a few) once the flight starts. Has anyone on the forum had any luck at Marconi Plaza in South Philly? It's so nice and wooded and near water.
