Hello! I'm new to the forums and didn't see a thread around for us midwestern states.


If you live in this region, this is the thread to keep an eye on.

Happy hunting!

I had one for the great lakes region and Kentucky.. But this one seems much better! :)

I read in literature that the flights for Prenolepis imparis will start in late March and continue into April, at least for Indiana.

Wisconsinite checking in here. Never caught a queen ant but I’ve looked for them before. Hoping to catch one this year. Any idea for what type of soil to use? I’ve already built an ant farm.
