No more battles happening anywhere. Looks like boundaries have been made where both ants meet, and both Pheidole megacephala and Argentine ants don't cross those boundaries. Its pretty much like last year where both ants stopped their massive battles once Summer was over. I don't even see any skirmishes anymore.
However the Pheidole megacephala still expanded a lot last rain storm. Tonight was first night I looked at them in a while that was late at night. But, area #6 now loops around and connects to area #3.
And its not listed on the map as its a new area, but area #4 almost loops around to the colonies that expanded below that apartment building I marked out (the red box beneath where I marked #4). So they'll have that entire area controlled by them along the road/garages. Soon they will have one very large amount of territory that all connects up with each section (ignoring #1 and #5 areas). That'll give them a huge amount of ants they can reinforce with, as earlier in the year the colony was quite spread out so they were attacked from quite a lot of sides. And while the Pheidole megacephala still did good and won all battles, next year they'll be able to do even better.
And with this post being 1st on Page and being the start of page 2. This post makes a rather fitting "break" from posting updates, this'll be last for a while. Next update will likely be next year at some point. I'll probably still check on them occasionally, but unless there is some massive huge change, this thread will be taking a long break
