I've been living in NJ the entirety of my exposure to the ant hobby and I am almost never just casually outdoors unless it's part my commute, so I haven't been lucky enough to find my own queens. 2020 marks another year of me wasting the ant flight season! Every once in a while I remember summer 2016 me who was walking home in the middle of what must've been a camponotus flight and just.. kept walking. Ugh.
I wanted to start up this thread since I can't find one, or a recent one. But maybe there are other people in NJ interested in our flights, species, etc who'd like a place to pop in and announce seen/expected flights, share any queens they've found, blah blah. And maybe between this thread, stalking the rest of the forum, and getting pinged in a server, I'll be able to make use of next spring/summer and really dive into the hobby with both feet!
Hopefully it's not just me in my state!
