Ok, so heres the deal, I had 2 Solenopsis richteri queens and they were both doing great! Already had nanitics and growing strong...until one day (2 days ago) I noticed their cotton was pulled and the queens gone. After some looking I not only found their cotton plugs but also their remains and the remains of a Camponotus pennsylvanicus queen and 2 of my Tetramorium caspitum queens...the culprit, a damn mouse!!! Dead mouse now but anyway, I'm in desperate need of at least 1 more Solenopsis richteri or invicta queen. Multiple would be better and it doesn't matter if they are freshly caught or have workers/nanitics already. I have numerous species I could trade or I'll buy if that's what's needed. please help!!! This was/is my most wanted species and I would hate to have to wait another year :-(. XD Thanks to any who can help me...
Keeping:
Camponotus subbarbatus
Camponotus pennsylvanicusx3 (founding)
Dorymyrmex bureni
Formica pallidefulva x3
Formica subsericea x4
Tetramorium immigrans

Have kept many other ant species but now keep over 100 tarantulas and other inverts! Mantids, centipedes, and scorpions to name a few 😁

So I have talked to a couple people and apparently Solenopsis fly up until like the end of September especially with this rain and warm humid days they could be out and about if you wouldn't mind keeping your eye out. I would be happy to purchase any or trade.
