Is anyone from the Greater Vancouver Area?
I'm looking to find any ant keepers in my area.

Yo, im in vancouver also, just started this year by catching a tetramorium queen.

There isnt much to do right now but come spring i hope we can coordinate ant sightings and find out which parks have which ant species! I would really like to have carpenter ants too because I hear they are huge.

I just stumbled across this and was wondering if that sightings thread ever took off? I know it's 2 years later, but I just caught a Camponotus sp. in Richmond a couple blocks from the Ikea near the river. There's definitely a nest nearby because I've seen one or two workers.

Does anyone know if that's far enough away from the colony? M'lady still has her wings on and I feel like I should just release her back into the gene pool.
