Its not that small ants are boring, its just that I see monomorium all the time and they are kinda the only ant in the area within a mile radius walking around. Camponotus aren't really in the area and the closest place I know they are is like 3+ish mi away and even then its mostly prenolepis there (which would be cool to catch but of the 4 queens that I caught, 2 died within a week, 1 died sometime a month later with no eggs, and 1 has eggs but no workers after 3 months (but still alive). Solenopsis would be cool but there are none nearby.
In preparation for the weird hybrid male nanitic, is isopropyl alcohol sufficient in a small container? (I have 70 and 90%) I was reading about Kahle's solution is that worth buying? I was reading the point of the solution was to keep the insect from turning black, but its already black so idk.
I will hopefully post some more pictures for better identification tomorrow.
edit: might not even be monomorium, might just be argentines.
