In the beginning of August, Solenopsis molesta and Brachymyrmex flew on a warm night after rain at around 5-9PM. I decided to merge their journals into one, as they're both relatively similar aside from some morphological differences, and they fly at the same time. 

 

I made multiple groups of S. molesta. Here's the biggest group with lots of eggs.

 

I'll update this journal with more pictures soon.

About two weeks ago, the Solenopsis molesta got their workers. I have a few successful colonies. All of the Brachymyrmex have died, which seems to happen a lot.

All of these colonies were killed by mold, except for one that moved but only had one worker.

 

The only colonies still alive are in the vivarium, and I rarely see them.
