Am, 1 or two are cleaning their gasters, are there still flights left to take place for tetramorium?
I caught 6 tetramorium queens June 30th at about 6-7 am, there's probably going to be a flight or two in July. Keep looking!

Caught something yesterday, too big to be Tetramorium...I'll admit I'm not too good at identifying ants I haven't seen before. Sadly she died soon after capture, pretty confident she wasn't a drone since she didn't have wings. It was near late afternoon in northern Illinois. I did see another dead in a spider's web so I assume something was flying that day.
