Are Pogonomyrmex polygynous? Will his remaining queens be able to forage in the same area, say, an outwirld?

It depends, I’ve heard that some species like P. occidentalis will kill each other other if put together. However I’ve had my californicus queens in pairs for over a month now and I haven’t lost any to fighting.

I keep: Acromyrmex versicolor :D, Brachymyrmex sp., Cremagaster sp., C. modoc, C. sansabeanus, C. clarithorax, C. maritimus, Formica argentea, L. occidental, M. mexicanus, Odontomachus brunneus :D, Pheidole sp., Pogonomyrmex californicus, Pogonomyrmex rugosus, S. xyloni, 

I’m looking for: Stigmatomma sp., Pseudomyrmex apache or gracilis, PM me if your selling these in the US
