I'm from Columbus! Just starting the hobby :P

I've caught 3 queens after 4 trips on trails ( 1-2 hour walks per trip )

1 of the 3 queens (Formica I believe, but unsure...) is laying eggs and actively protecting/watching over them.

The other 2 queens (Both Camponotus, for sure) are laying eggs, but they're scattered and they don't tend to them.

So I'm 75% success on catching queens.
But only 33% on catching fertile queens...
Which means 25% chance per trip of catching a fertile queen.

Hoping she does well :)

So... apparently today was a Formica nuptial flight extravaganza. In Columbus, I caught 21 queens today. 19 are Formica. I’m unsure of the other 2. I’m more than willing to share (for free) if anyone wants to contact me about them! I’ve tubed every single one of them.

:)
