I was wondering if anyone knows where Strumigenys, or Miniature Huntress Ants, are most often found. I've heard that one species lives in and around the nests of Aphaenogaster tennesseensis, and I know where one is. I'm really hoping to find some to pin or keep. Thank you in advance.

I find them all the time in decaying logs or branches. More uncommonly under rocks embedded in leaf litter. The main thing to look out for is areas with high densities of springtails which is why they may live inside the nests or nearby to other ants.

Thanks! I will be on the lookout for them when I get back home in a week and a half.
