Is there an ant Species In Ontario that has many queens. I’ve been trying to find queens for this lil dark ants but yet to find one. I think I read somewhere that there is some that have a tone of queens that are workers but unknown if that was here in my Country. If you have any info please let me know thank you.

Some polygynous genera present in Ontario include-

Brachymyrmex
Formica
Myrmica
Solenopsis
Temnothorax.

These genera are common and easy to find throughout temperate North America.

I knew beforehand that these genera are “generally” :lol: polygynous, yet I just looked on AntWeb.org to check if they all existed in Ontario.
