So it's been awhile since I have been here. Life has been weird this yr and I haven't had the chance to get back here and chat. A little update on my aphaenogaster picea colony which is booming now. Colony size us at least 250 workers with a ton of brood.

Quite large, have never gotten my colonies of this species that big yet. All seemed slow growing.
