I know I'm not from Minnesota, but being from your neighbor, the same climate and weather, I figured our nuptial flights happen about the same time. I spotted Camponotus pennsylvanicus in the last week of May, and Lasius neoniger and Solenopsis molesta on the same day, around labor day. I spottted Myrmica sp. about a week after.

Hello, new ant keeper here! I’m located in the Saint Paul area of Minnesota. Shoreview-ish, not exact for privacy. I caught a camponotus queen last Thursday. I’m going to go out looking tomorrow and Thursday. Hopefully it will be nice and humid and these rainstorms will encourage some nuptial flights! :D

Hello! New member here. I used to keep ants when I lived in California and really want to start again now that I’ve settled into Minnesota (Saint Paul). Does anyone have a small colony they might be willing to part ways with?

Welcome to the AC Forums. Just a heads up, Please do not ask for ants on the forums, We do not Sell, Trade, or Give Away ants via the forums. This is in the AC Forum rules and I would advise you to take a look at them. If you interested Please Take a look at the AntsCanada GAN Project to find a GAN Farmer near you. Thanks.
