I was bored so at noon today I went anting and while I didn't catch anything I saw a lot more ant activity in my backyard. One thing I saw that I have never seen in my backyard was odontomachus. I think it was a queen ,but it escaped behind the fence. I'm not good at finding more secretive ants. Does anyone have any tips for catching queens or colonies of these?
