 I do but my friend actually keeps it so I don't get to monitor it as I would like. He actually may bring it to me as well cause with it getting hotter outside he may be less able to give it a warm area as well as I can. So , oh Darn, I 'll have both!! :D

Lucky! I don't see this species much in my area. I have seen them in great numbers a few miles away from my house though, but I can never find anywhere to find a queen. I found a lot of queens when I went up to Michigan last summer though.

Excellent! Good luck with this queen. Just wait till Tetramorium season. You'll have queens coming out your ears.
