If there are any antkeepers in southwestern ontario that are interested in a few months i will have some tetramorium colonies and maybe a camponotous colony for sale on the GAN project.

As a newbie to the MacGregor community I would love to know if any events are planned for Lake Ontario this year?

Ottawa here. New to the hobby but already 6 founding colonies, 4 Camponotus Novaeboracensis and 2 Lasius sp. Smallest colony has 9 workers, largest has 16.

Was hoping to trade one of the Camponutus for another new species so that I have more variety, but with hibernation season just around the corner I guess it would be pointless until the spring.

Would like to meetup with any other locals here or possibly in Montreal which I visit often.

Took 3 of my foundling colonies out of hibernation. All ants survived. :) My Camponotus Novae are very active, have been laying lots of eggs and the existing brood growing fast. My Lasius Neoniger colony seems very lethargic though. Only took then out 5 days ago some maybe that is the reason (I Hope).

Still 2 colonies in hibernation.

Anyone else end hibernation?

Ottawa as well

I have 10 queens in various stages of founding and they're all awake and hungry.

2x Camponotus novaeboracensis

3x Formica fusa (very sensitive to light)

2x tetrimorium e. I think

And 3x small black queens I caught at the end of the season last year. No I'd yet
Yaaas my queen
