I want to know what invasive ants live in europe because i would like to keep solenopsis invicta (if it lives in europe) and argentine ants because of their abillity of merging colonies (It is 100 percent sucesfull every time)
Keeping : 2 Formica colonies: 5-10 workers
Tetramorium : 1 colony 3-5 workers
Lasius Niger : colony 30+ workers
Lasius Emarginatus:colony 10 workers
Solenopsis Fugax: 5 colonies 5+workers

You can find many solenopsis colonies in south Asia.
Even I live in south Asia and I have solenopsis geminate colony.

Solenopsos Invectas are most abundant

It's likely present in Pakistan so it's not abundant and that's why I haven't been able to find any colony of solenopsi sp.

This is the list of all the abundant ants in Pakistan and you can see there isn't any solenopsis mentioned in the list.
