Hello from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA

Hey all! I am happy to finally be apart of this community!

On July 28th this year I caught 6 queens during nuptial flights. Mikey believes they are Lasius (not sure species). They are now in test tube setups and seem to be doing well. When I checked on them last week 5/6 had started laying eggs.

I won't be able to support 6 colonies if they are all viable, so I have talked with MadVampy and Mikey about joining the GAN project. As I would be the only one in Ohio I hope I can help others in Ohio to start and care for their first colonies!

Also I'm looking for camponotus, if anyone in Ohio might catch one I'd be interested in buying/trading.

Since this is my first time I will be full of questions and welcome any and all advice.

Thank you,

Thank you all!

Once I get to take some decent pictures I'll upload. My phone kind of sucks and has trouble focusing that close up.
