Do they attract other undesirable insects or are only queen ants attracted to it for some strange reason?

All sorts of insects, including scorpions, but those are helpful as food for ants. :D

Well I don't think it attracts scorpions really, as it's just flying insects that will land on it. Scorpions however, will glow green/yellow when a black light is shined on them.

 

Did you keep some of the brood alive? I wonder how the workers of this species look like.

All the brood slowly disappeared.

I found another six of these alates on my black light the other night. I boosted all six of them with some S. xyloni pupae. Hopefully I have a fertile one.

Found a few of these the other night in Trabuco Canyon, two of them dealates. I have been keeping a few S. xyloni queens this year so I can use their brood in trying to rear some of these again. I gave them each a few darkened pupae, and one even got a callow worker. We'll see how it goes this year.

No offence but please don't revive old threads, like Manitobant has mentioned in other threads it clogs up the recent post threads, and there are multiple other journals of this sp that are more recent.


1X Pogonomyrmex occidentalis 40-50 Workers

1X Solenopsis molesta 10 Workers (mono)

Ants I Want: Crematogaster sp, Camponotus Sp., Ponera Pennsylvanica, Mymercocystus sp.
