Is there a way to know if you have a severe allergy to them?

Short of having one sting you? Probably not.

I'm pretty sure it's related to a bee sting since ants evolved from bees, so if you're allergic to bees, I'm pretty sure you'll be allergic to Pogonomyrmex.

Ants did not evolve from bees. They did evolve from a common ancestor they have with wasps.

Ehh I guess I'm a kid but I think I can contain Pogonomyrmex, going to try them this year. Hopefully I don't get stung.

Yeah the pack a punch. I don't keep any Pogonomyrmex anymore for that reason. I had a few get out and stung my 4 year old. He swelled up really bad we had to take him to the ER.


Yes. I have been stung by californicus and it was not the most pleasant experience. I got stung on my wrist and it felt like a very tight pinch, twisting slowly, multiplied by, like 10 or 100. Don’t know which exactly. But I know one thing. Try not to get stung!! But I have an infertile queen and they are still fun to keep though.

The one that stung you is probably P. subdentadus @Rstheant.

Are these still alive?

Hi there! I went on a 6 month or so hiatus, in part due, and in part cause of the death of my colonies. 

However, I went back to the Sierras, and restarted my collection, which is now as follows:

Aphaenogaster uinta, Camponotus vicinus, Camponotus modoc, Formica cf. aserva, Formica cf. micropthalma, Formica cf. manni, Formica subpolita, Formica cf. subaenescens, Lasius americanus, Manica invidia, Pogonomyrmex salinus, Pogonomyrmex sp. 1, Solenopsis validiuscula, & Solenopsis sp. 3 (new Sierra variant).

Would giving her eggs from another colony help revive her egg pooping?
