If you got a colony with a queen I would buy it from you.

Hey everyone, its been a little while but I realized that subterranean termites are poking their heads out to see if the weathers good for a flight. Anyone else seen anything interesting?

So, I'm very new to this. Is this a Camponotus queen?

Found her yesterday. I think I see wing scars. She's almost an inch long.

Yes she looks to be a camponotus queen. Someone else may provide the specific species. I have noveborecantis they have a reddish hue through their thorax
