Welcome people of Formiculture! For I, Chickalo, am brewing up something. Not really just wanted to soud cool- ANYWAYS! I decided to split my journals into subfamily to make it easier (with exeptions like Pheidole pilifera and such). I'll be making them one by one as update need be, until then, welcome to my journal for my Formicinae!
At the moment, the Lasius brevicornis queen decided it's a good, no, great idea to eat her two cocoons. Amazing. Well, on the contrary, looking for neoniger/americanus/latipes queens soon, so that could be fun.
Recently caught a Camponotus nearticus (wack time of year to fly but okay), she has one injured leg and because of my general luck with founding Camponotus, she'll likely die. For some wack reason, Campontous queens just like to die for me. Not a single one have laid an egg. Hopefully she'll be able to get past eggs lol, probably not however. Also because I found her a month after normal flights.
Until next time,
