Where and when are you finding queen ants? A section to share nuptial flight schedules by ant species and locality
After reading tetramorium sightings were getting abundant in PA it took about a week to start seeing any in my pool here in central NY and today was first day saw queens with out wings searching for a founding site. Maybe same delay will happen for you since just a bit north of me.noebl1 wrote:Tetramorium reports in NY and such... still nothing here. Also having a relative who lives around the MA/RI border check the pool skimmer, and hasn't seen any at all either.
Right before that flight in may I had just gotten into finding queens and then bam! I was walking home and there were like 4 camponotus queens per square of sidewalk, must have seen 30 at least around 230pm the whole 2 mile walk I took I mean they were everywhere so kinda gave me some unreal expectations for other flights I still always look but I think camponotus queens are so big they are just bout impossible to miss but have not had the same luck with other genus. Today found all three tetramorium in the same corner of sidewalk and then didn't see any others until one a mile away.
LOL My friend Zipter has to hide all his ants from his Girlfriend...let alone tell her to help himnightxwolf88 wrote:Nicely done Its awesome to see you got someone to help. Its nice to cover more area, just wish I could get my girlfriend to look for queens at her house
