Small Tetramorium flight early this morning (went out at 5:00 AM and they were flying. The flight stopped at about 5:30.)

One thing I found out very early on in this hobby is that it takes a LOT of patience. Unless someone is willing to give you a mature colony it is going to take a few years for you to go from a queen to a large mature colony. If there is any shortcut around this fact I certainly have not found it yet.

My only real goal now is to get a colony that has multiple queens colony or a tatramorium colony and still if anyone want camponatus queen for trade please pm me I have five or six queens more than I really need

I caught two Odorous house ant queens yesterday, so they're flying or budding around. And also I saw huge Tetramorium flight two days ago but I didn't catch any.

Lasius Neoniger (I think?) flew this evening, expecting more flights. I only caught 2 queens, both winged, but no attempt to fly and their fixation on grooming themselves suggests they have mated.

I have two I think tetramorium queens which I've caught recently and both have wings but have laid eggs and are currently in two separate test tubes. I would like to know if anyone on this forum would be interested in either trading or buying these queen. Please feel free to message me and if you want some pictures I would be willing to post them.
