I see these things ALL the time when I am out anting and I'm curious to see what they are...  Attached File  20200927_151432.jpg   588.53KB   1 downloads


My Colonies:

Formica Fusca Queen, one nanitic

Tetramorium Immagrans; has around 25-30 nanitics, in a mini-hearth

Tetramorium Immagrans; large brood pile, about 15 nanitics in a test tube.

1 Pogonomyrmex Occidentalis queen; laying eggs currently, in a mini hearth

Solenopsis Molesta, I caught 11 queens and put them all in a test tube.  Hoping that they are fertile.
