Hey guys, I live in New Mexico and have come across honeypot ant colonies. i.e. myrmecocystus sp. I was wondering if anyone can give me tips on catching these queens such as time of day, locations around the desert or around my house, and nuptial flights. Also, anyone's experiences on catching and raising honeypot ants. Thank you

Hi antsnewmexico, if you do a search of this website using the search tool and "myrmecocystus" or "honeypot," you will find tons of information to answer your questions -there's a wealth of information and experience previously posted, everything from flights to care to colony journals of those who have kept them. Search by author for dspdrew's posts on his Myrmecocystus mexicanus colonies which are detailed and very informative.
Cheers
