Lasius, Formica, and maybe Aphaenogaster.
I looked at aphaenogaster in my area (mostly cause I had no idea what they were lol) and I found a species I think I would love to try one day Aphaenogaster tennesseensis. Looks like they got bright orange gasters! Very cool looking.
these ants are founding parasites on other apheanogaster.in general apheanogaster are a little hard to feed. they dislike liquid sugar and their diet swings between sugar grains, insects, and seed.
Thanks for the info! Looks like I'll wait until I'm more experienced but its something to maybe look forward to!
So what exactly would have to be done to try? I'm guessing I'd first have to get a fertile A. tennesseensis queen while at the same time have access to another type of Aphaenogater colony but how much of that colony would I need to get the ball rolling so to speak?
