And I’m assuming you found dorymyrmex in west SD?

No, I've found a couple colonies in my yard, and have found a few queens (all infertile) during the last couple years. I know they're Dorymyrmex, and they're a dark grey, so I call them D. insanus, as it is several species, yet to be determined.

These were both Tapinoma and Nylanderia. Sorry...........

It's going to be in the 90s most of this week. Doesn't seem to be optimal flying conditions, but who knows. If anything, more Tetras will fly.
