Hullo there, people of Formiculture
After recently discovering the existence of a Prenolepis imparis colony only a minute walk from my house (one more species to add to my town's list!), I realised: How the heck am I supposed to know when they're gonna fly? As one does, I turn to the internet. Obviously after rain tends to be a given. However, what about temperature, wind, etc?
I live in Swampscott, Massachusetts, which might help considering the same species might have different needs depending on their location. Hopefully the forecast is accurate, so I can look for Prenolepis queens whilst pretending to tie my shoe when someone walks around, hoping they don't notice the test tube.
Thanks once again,
