I'm new to Anting in general, but I saw there were a few members in Phoenix, Az. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in meeting up to discuss ants and hang out.

I'm in Phoenix. Catching them as we speak. How many you want? Everything seem to fly today with the rain. I filled up 70 test tubes. Never seen it like this. No rain for almost 200 days. It poured and bam everything is flying. I even got some trap jaw queens it's unreal tonight. I'm using a black light and sheet. If your looking for honeypot ants i got 30 mendax tonight. 10 Pogonomyrmex and 20 messor. And a bunch of more common types.If you strike out let me know.
