Hooray! I finally have Pogonomyrmex! Last year I captured 3 Pogonomyrmex Rugosus queens in total and sadly they all died. But, I have tried everything to get some Pogonomyrmex and I've finally been able to! I went to a mountain south of Tucson this week on Sunday and caught 1 Camponotus Festinatus colony! And the week before that I found another Campontous Festinatus colony. I then knew that I bit off more then I could chew and I had to get rid of one of my colonies. So I just today traded 1 of the Camponotus Festinatus colonies for a large Pogonmyrmex Occidentalis colony that were raised from queen by someone up North in AZ and then the person up North traded with the person that I traded with that is from Tucson. And so then I traded one of the Festinatus colonies I had for 1 of the Pogonomyrmex Occidentalis colonies. I know what I just said is confusing because trust me even for me what I just said is confusing. But the point is I now have a Pogonomyrmex Occidentalis colony! I'm very excited to see how they grow! In a few days I'll release a journal on the Camponotus Festinatus colony I kept!
