Hey everyone, been a lurker here for a little while and finally starting to make the push to actually collect and keep some ants finally. I've been watching AntsCanada for years and feel I'm in a good position to build my own worlds.


I've become pretty hell bent on finding me some 'Big-Headed' Pheidole's so if anyone has found any in Oregon, I'd love to know where.


Anyways, thanks for having this forum to begin with. I have much to learn and hope to eventually be able to contribute just as much.

Welcome! Pheidole fly on warm humid nights in the summer. Just last night I found 2 Pheidole cf. bicarinata queens and 1 Pheidole cf. tysoni queen. Once the first workers arrive, they grow extremely quickly.
