I just recently got back into ants and have been searching the web for a intresting species and discovered these crazy winter ants. I saw that they were native to my current Colorado residence but was unable to find anyone who had captured any, or anybody Gan or otherwise who i could get them from. My question is has anyone had any luck catching winter ants in colorado? Second if anyone has caught this species before any tips or areas i should keep an eye on? Thank you in advance

Prenolepis imparis is rather rare in Colorado, and is likely strongly associated with the oak species Quercus gambeli.
