May 13th and the 20th (Holley NY) - Camponotus Pennsylvanicus 

 

May 26th (Holley NY) -  Lasius interjectus

 

June 20th (Holley NY)  Lasius interjectus

 

August 15th (Albion NY) Lasius claviger

Thanks. We actually have a thread just for this very thing.

I will be creating a form people can fill out eventually. If possible I would like to know the time they were flying, and the weather.

How sure are you about the Lasius claviger? All the reports I have are in September, October, and November. May seems awfully early.

I second guessed that it was L. interjectus and he confirmed it. I edited my first post to appropriate sub species.

 

Sorry for that confusion. I won't update the pinned post unless I am sure from now on. :)

 Lasius interjectus flew again today at my parents house in Holley NY. Big swarms coming out of their cement porch. 

 

It was about 74 degrees and VERY humid.

I will just edit my top post here for my own records and post in this thread from now on.

 

Forgot.  :)
