Me and my brother might have gone a but crazy, so we actually have I think 17 of them? We had been trying to find queens for so long that we just collected a ton. We also figured that their were probably a ton of people who would like some queens since theirs not many people in VA selling them unfortunately, I we plan on giving some away when they get their first nanitics. But I will definitely keep you updated! Go to the full post

I don't think there are any records of Lasius flavus/Lasius nearcticus flying in October. There are plenty for Brachymyrmex depilis, though.

If you've enjoyed using my expertise and identifications, please do not create undue ecological risk by releasing your ants. The environment which we keep our pet insects is alien and oftentimes unsanitary, so ensure that wild populations stay safe by giving your ants the best care you can manage for the rest of their lives, as we must do with any other pet.

 

Exotic ants are for those who think that vibrant diversity is something you need to pay money to see. It is illegal to transport live ants across state lines.

Prenolepis imparis is kinda out of the question, since April is the latest that those fly. Everything points to this being Brachymyrmex depilis.
