Hello from North brisbane, Australia

Hey guys, just thought I'd throw up a post introducing myself and ask a couple of questions, for anyone that is local :)

I'm curious what ants are around brisbane, specifically Redcliffe and surrounds.

Any local shops, or substitutes for test tubes and what not? (I feel like postage would be a killer)

I've still got a lot of research to do before I make the leap (any links would be brilliant) and start up.

Thanks for the help in advance =D

I'm not from Brisbane but from what I know there should be Camponotus [sugar ants], iridomyrmex sp [black pavement ants], pheidole and maybe opisthopsis. The bush around the city should contain Myrmecia [bullants]. If you can't find test tubes use floral tubes or vinyl tubing with water block one end.

2 x iridomyrmex sp Queen: 10+ workers
1 x opisthopsis Queen:
2 x pheidole queen?

Hello there!

Following is a very helpful site of native species in New South Wales and Queensland:

https://antmaps.org/?

I put native in bold because you might find non-native species.

Hopefully, this is helpful!
