It just rained a few days ago. Its my first year collecting ants and I was lucky enough to find two tetramorium queens. There was also many dead male ants in my pool as well as some queens :( . What is everyone else finding?

Nothing on my end, though I really want to find some. If anyone finds any extra and want to give or sell them, hit me up.

Just found another as well as some garden ant queens. I kept the tetramonium. I’m finding these all in my pool! Hoping some of them will lay eggs soon
