Between other nest activity and the ideal weather for the weekend. The next day or two is likely to kick off a flight. Saw loads of queen's hanging outside their nest entrances but it rained shortly after but this morning was the end of the rain for the weekend and the temp has already made a come back with the streets completely dry.

I say this in hopes that you have the same luck in weather and get the flights you are hoping for. I still have approximately one more week before M. Rubra fly so anything that flies over the weekend will strictly be for the GAN.
Research is important before during and even after you have established a colony. There is always time to learn and to listen to others experiences. Live by this and your ants will thrive. Fail to do so and your experience may be brief.
