July 26

Around 3 to 5 PM. Warm but not hot. Not so humid.

Found another Trachymyrmex septentrionalis queen. At this point, I'm wondering if they already regurgitated the fungus and were just foraging.

Which means they would not be successful in captivity.

It hasn't rained over here in a while.

 

June 27

Didn't found anything.

 

June 28

Late at night before noon. Not too hot, not too humid. No flight observed.

Found Solenopsis sp. moving pupae of alates so their flight is not over yet.

Rained again during the morning.
A lot of flights right before the sunset.
Air is cool and it is quite humid.

 

Dorymyrmex bureni flew 

Same Pheidole sp. (around 4~5 mm) from July 13 flew as well.

Other species flew as well.
