I sell so many test tubes that I end up with a lot less than I realize from time to time. Time for another order I guess.

What time of day did you catch the formica? I got up at 8 and then had already flow. Alates in the pool all flew off when brought out, and didn't find any while walking.

By the way, I think the ones that I posted about flying on the SF Bay area anter page is this species, it looks to have stubby golden hairs all over the body.

Well Scrixx, we found them around 8pm right? Drew said it took only 45 minutes to get all his containers filled so I would say night is the best time to catch them if you know there is a flight.

Do you have prices for Camponotus sansabeanus, Camponotus clarithorax, Formica francoeuri, or Pogonomyrmex californicus yet?

 

Also, do you ever sell queens without workers first?

His prices are listed on the first page of the thread. As far as I know Drew rarely, if ever, sells queens that haven't founded a colony yet.

Myrmecocystus navajo are super easy. I got my colony in 2016 I believe from Drew in a trade for Acromyrmex fungus, and they are doing great. They finally started growing too, at least a bit. For a while they remained pretty much same worker number. They make small colonies as far as I know, but have taken so little maintenance. Plus they are really neat to watch, especially their repletes.
