oh and Tetramorium we aint got in the northern US. Check out www.antmaps.org
oh, and we DO have Tetromorium sp. in the U.S. you should reference more than one source before committing to an answer. you have to remember some people reference this site, which means they read what you write here. we have to be more responsible with the info we are spreading, guys. :)

if you read the about page on "ANTMAPS", it tells you to use the site in conjunction with other sites like, "ANTWEB" and "ANTWIKI". the site is also a work in progress to get all ant info on there. :D

Good for you! You should start a journal! I would love to see how your colones grow! I just caught another Camponotus Subbarbatus by hacking open some rotten logs with a hatchet. I highly suggest you do that! Only thing is they will most likely have eggs and if you can not collect the eggs you need to give them a bit of honey. So they can lay some more :D
Keeping a journal is a good idea I love seeing how other ppls colonies are doing and what they are learning from them. Thank you for the queen tips as well AntsRule :)

Not sure if this counts... Long Island, New York: I caught a Tetramorium sp.E queen 2 days ago.
