Hey, guys. These upcoming warm months, I'm wondering if any of you know any "Hot Spots" in Colorado where I'd be able to locate Camponotus Novaeboracensis or any members of the Pheidole genus.


My nearest potential is the Bear Creek Green Belt, in Lakewood. Chatfield reservoir is about a 20 minute drive.

I edited your title, I can't stand when people put something like Camponotus nova in their titles. So Incorrect. :P  Anyways, I would message kujawaorchids. He/she had a great deal of luck finding queens last season.

What upcoming warm months you talking about? It was 18 degrees according to my car this morning!

 

But really Kuja would be your best bet. Zero and myself are just Tetra & Pogonomyrmex heavy.
