Not yet! Soon! I have already started walking outside a bit, but it is just too cold. Once the high for the day gets to ~60, start looking! I wouldnt expect much until April though, still hoping to find a winter ant. =/

Oo, nice to see this thread getting some activity.

I've been out scouting hunting spots in West Seattle but it's just been too cold I think. The only acitivity I've seen was some (probably) Argentine Workers.

Do you know much about the range of Prenolepis in WA? AntWeb makes it seem like they've only been seen down south near Vancouver/Portland and a bit East of there.
