I just caught in Oregon a queen that I believe to be a camponotus pennsylvanicus though I'm not 100% sure. If I sent you a pic could you identify?

The 1st one is pavement ants right? Are they smaller then the camponotus? I actually don't know much about pavement ants.

Hello! Just wanted to drop a line to say that I'm interested. I'm a first timer, recently had a swing and a miss, and I'm gonna try again after hearing a tip (actually from Kahldris here; hello again my dude!) about a nuptial flight on Tuesday. Please keep me posted on your availability, and I will do my best to get back to you with an update by Monday, the 17th. If you have buyers before then and sell out, no worries. Business is business.

Tetramorium caespitum is not currently known to exist in Oregon. I'm assuming you meant Tetramorium immigrans?

I am also concerned about your C. pennsylvanicus ID as there are a number of easily-mistakable species in Oregon that are significantly more common.


Ready for Nuptial flights!

You are correct after closer inspection they are immigrans.
