At least you caught one. I’m really upset cause it’s my first queen I've caught ever and the first I’ve seen in weeks. And I can’t find it now. She was quite large though. I’d say maybe 15mm or so. Still had wings so I think she flew.HaydenP wrote: ↑Wed Sep 19, 2018 8:34 pm[quote=SebbyBC post_id=50947 time=<a href="tel:1537400790">1537400790</a> user_id=16550]

Update: 4 pheidole workers escaped and I only found 1. Kinda crazy that this thread was just started and now it happened to me. Wasn’t the queen though
Are those the only workers you had?
I have a queen and with it, I caught six workers. 3 are still missing and one died. I have two other pheidole queens, but I’m not using workers with them because I’m not sure if the worker method is better or not so I wanted a backup. They seem to reproduce by budding though and are very polygynous, so the workers don’t harm the queen at all. I went back and caught a major and a worker to makeup for the missing ones. I’m not going to go after anymore. I’ll just see how this goes I guess.
Good luck to you, I still haven’t found my queen so I don’t think it’s going to happen at all.
