Hi!

My daughter's looking for a queen ant to start a colony, but so far we've had no luck finding one on our own. Might you be willing to share one of these, or sell it? PM me if you're interested.

Thanks!

Sure I could sell one of my lasius For 20$ Witch is cheap for ant colonys because if you look at lasius colonys on antscanadas website the cheapest is 25$.None of my colonys have workers but my lasius colonys have countless eggs and brude.So tell me if you are interested btw you also have to live in Minnesota :D

Lasius identification is difficult without macro, since you have to look at details like the teeth on the mandibles and the hairs on the antennae. Lasius flavus and Lasius nearcticus are basically indistinguishable except for how long one tiny mouthpart is in relation to the other nearby segments.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
